Volunteer workers are invited to the Fox Fullerton Theatre at 9 a.m., Saturday, December 14 for a work party to help perform general clean up and wash down of the theatre’s lobby and courtyard. Volunteers will also ascend the iconic Fox sign atop the building to start chipping away at the rust in preparation of its eventual overhaul. “Coffee and donuts for everyone,” said Leland Wilson, president of the Fullerton Historic Theatre Foundation (FHTF).
The 88-year old former vaudeville venue and motion picture palace received good news from the Fullerton City Council on December 3 when the council unanimously voted a lease with Dripp Coffee, a boutique coffeehouse located in Chino Hills. Dripp Coffee will become the first tenant to occupy the attached Firestone Building on the northeast corner of Harbor Boulevard and Chapman Avenue. Dripp has reportedly agreed to put $1 million in upgrades to the property.
