Boulder Fox Theater

Boulder’s Fox Theater celebrates 20 years as an institution in the community. The Fox has been a local venue for music entertainment for an amazing two decades running.

Consider though that the Fox Theater on the Hill in Boulder across from the CU Campus has been operating much longer than the 20 years everyone’s talking about.

The Fox Theater operated as a regular movie theater for many years prior to turning into a live music nightclub.

Strange as it may seem, The Hill had two movie theaters back in the old days. The Fox, and also the Flatirons theater just up the street.

Many businesses have changed, grown, or come and gone throughout the decades as the area around and on 13th St. and College Ave. If you’re looking at a particular neighborhood, or part of Boulder when contemplating a move, or just wondering about where you might like to hang out.

I’d seriously enjoy having the opportunity to talk to you about your planif you’re moving, or if you know someone who is considering a move, and needs some straight answers.

The Fox Theater has an amazing history of incredible musicians and bands who have come to Boulder over the years.

Here’s a little Wiki info:

Originally constructed in 1926 as the Rialto Theatre, the building at 1135 13th Street had a number of occupants in its early years. The ownership record is nearly as convoluted as the list of business occupants. The property was sold in April 1926 by William Beach to Adrian G. Diez, who constructed the building. He sold it in May 1927 to the Curran-Isis Theatres Company (Frank Ricketson and associates). They sold in 1930 to the Fox Colorado Theatre Group, who in turn sold it in 1933 to the Fox Colorado Theatre Company. A quitclaim deed in 1935 resulted with the Boulder K & F Realty Company as the new owner. They sold it in 1946 to the Isis Theatre Company (also Fox Intermountain Theaters). County Assessor’s records are not available until a transaction in 1978, when the building was sold by the National General Theaters to the Mann Theaters Corporation. This company sold the property in 1988 to Cinamerica Theaters. In 1994, the present owner, Celtic Properties, purchased the building at 1135 13th Street.
