Fox Theater is located at 2001 H Street in Downtown Bakersfield, California.
The theater, which opened on Christmas Day, 1930, is the performing arts hub of downtown Bakersfield, and hosts a variety of performing talent, ranging from ballets to contemporary pop and rock acts.
The Bakersfield Fox was an early work of Los Angeles theater architect S. Charles Lee. The exterior of the building is in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, as was the original interior. The 1500 seat auditorium was designed in the "atmospheric" style popularized by architect John Eberson, and featured a plain ceiling set with small lights to resemble stars in a night sky, while the walls were lined by decorative false walls with murals painted on the real walls behind them depicting open countryside, all meant to suggest that the auditorium was in fact a Mediterranean walled garden.
