Theater Marquee Series


The auditorium of the Fox Theatre has a colorful East Indian Buddhist temple gloss applied over a standard squared off Weeks & Day interior. The entry portion of the main facade takes the form of a polychrome mosaic-like shrine, with smaller lantern-topped towers on either side. Trim with a Near Eastern flavor forms the cornice line for the remainder of the building.

This is one of a series of over 25 theater marquees from California, Oregon and Massachusetts.Ā

    • John, thank you. I’m still on the prowl for good marquees but they have to be lit and taken during the blue hour. Any suggestions for your area?

    • Marcus, thank you. We are very fortunate to have so many still in operation. Many have been turned into community theaters. The next time you’re in Portland there are three excellent ones.

      • Thanks for the inspiration , Tim. Iā€™m boarding the flight to PDX in 30 minutes and will be there for 11 days. So plenty of time to look into a visit of one of those….

      • I hope your flight went well and you have sometime to explore these marquees. Who knows, take in a movie. Enjoy!
