Fox Theatre, Venice
Latest News – September 2019
The Fox Venice, long underutilized as a “swap meet”, was sold about a year ago, and a proposal to tear down all but the facade and build a Trader Joes on the location was presented to the city Planning Dept in January.
LAHTF is assisting the local community in writing a nomination for Historic-Cultural Monument designation. This could be a valuable tool in any attempt to protect the theatre building.
As of September there has been no forward progress on the proposed redevelopment. We will continue to assist the community to protect and hopefully reactivate the Fox Venice Theatre.
