Farewell to the Fox -- October 20, 2016

The San Francisco Arts Commission ( has set up a series of posters by artist Jeff Canham.  "The Best Show in Town" depicts messages that appeared on the marquees of famous theaters along Market Street from 1928 to 2015.

This item appeared on the marquee of the Fox Theater at 1350 Market Street in 1963.The Fox opened in 1929, and was considered the most beautiful theater in the city.  It was a great tragedy when the theater closed and was demolished in 1963. 

I sat on seats from the Fox at the Richelieu Theater, a repertory theater at Geary and Van Ness. 

This is the last of The Best Show in Town series.
