One Bright Spot

After my previous rant about the Cities of Banning and Indian Wells, one bright spot should be mentioned.  In 2010, the restored Fox Theater was reopened in Riverside, and just recently the reconstructed blade signs went up on the sides.  These blade signs were on the building until probably the early 1940s - so very few people around today remember when they were up.  From all indications, the theater is a success.  Let's hope it keeps going!


  1. Those blade signs sure do look great. I think they balance out the marquee a bit better. The facade-otomy next door to the FOX I like much less. I would rather have seen them keep the buildings and turn them into a black-box theatre.

    The blog looks great, by the way. I look forward to seeing more posts!

  2. I agree Tanya - and we had to fight to get just that!
