Historic Bakersfield Fox Theater
On Christmas Day in 1930 this theater opened its doors showing David Butler's sci-fi film set 50 years into the future, "Just Imagine." After 1977 the theater experienced a series of openings and closures, finally falling into disrepair. It was slated for destruction, but was saved in 1994 by a group of business people. Since 1994 the theater has been undergoing a long and expensive restoration. Today, it is in operation with the likes of Amy Grant, Tanya Tucker, and tribute band Led Zeppelin IV.
