Spokane's Fox Theater has been "The Place to Go" since it opened in 1931. Lines formed around the block to view the latest feature and famous performers graced its stage. Even during its decline, the theater has retained its vestiges of elegance in its faded murals and dusty chandeliers. 

Threatened by demolition, the Fox survived the wrecking ball thanks to the efforts of the Spokane community. The KSPS documentary Spokane’s 21st Century Fox explores the history of the Fox Theater, from its grand opening in 1931 to the renovation process that led to the grand-reopening of the theater in 2007.
