One of the classic movie palaces in downtown Tucson, the Fox, was restored circa 2006. My former employer, First Magnus, helped to sponsor the restoration shortly before the company collapsed in the mortgage but of 2007. This shot is from 2009.
The Fox's wonderfully colorful tiled walls, late 2009.
The Rialto is more of a concert venue these days. The guy I helped to find guilty of drunk driving in 2007 had been at a show at the Rialto. I've never been in either that theater or the Fox.
I have been to the Gaslight Theatre, a few times. Their shows are all parodies, full of puns and corny jokes, old style pop music and old fashioned staging with basic cutouts representing cars, horses and so on. I saw a Sherlock Holmes parody one year, and a silly fake Mountie melodrama as a Christmas show another year. The current production is Arizona Smith and the Relic of Doom.
And if you want to put on a show of your own, you can always rent some of the Gaslight's costumes to do it!
So far there are only a few participants this week. How about joining in yourself?
