Best Spot for Some Old-Time Cinema

Fox Tucson Theatre

While the Fox Tucson Theatre continues to search for its soul (and audience)—or wait, maybe it's that Tucson is still searching for its own soul—the restored theater has become a great destination for old movie serials, cartoons and other old-time fare. It helps parents introduce their kids to Benji or The Rocky Horror Picture Show (yes, with a stroll out for popcorn during certain scenes). This summer, the Fox brought generations together with screenings of old movie serials like The Green Archer. Right now, these old-film screenings are probably not enough to pay the Fox's bills, but it's a start in getting people to ask, "I wonder what's playing at the Fox?"
