The MGM Musical “Chasing Rainbows” was on the playbill and more than 3,000 excited filmgoers were on hand to laugh with Jack Benny and hear a catchy new tune called Happy Days are Here Again! for the first time.
Our Annual Gala is a true celebration of that opening night many years ago. Since re-opening to the public in 2006 (after a 30 year absence and a 6 year, $14 million renovation), the Fox Tucson Theatre has re-established it’s place as the “crown jewel” of downtown Tucson’s resurgence. We hope you’ll join us for another fun-filled evening of great music and community gaiety as we honor our past and toast the exciting things to come.
