The Fox-Watson Theater opened in 1931, a lavish Art deco facility that served the Salina community until 1987. The City of Salina and the Historic Fox Theater Foundation completed restoration and reopened the theater with a sell-out concert in March 2003. Jones Gillam Architects Engineers were the architects for the project, and Norm Yenkey was the General Contractor.
