Potential economic Impact
For Pittsburg and surrounding areas
The renovated and revitalized Colonial Fox Theatre will be THE art house screening room in the region. Offering the rich historic ambiance of the movie palace era and pin-drop acoustics, the Colonial Fox Theatre will be more than the only Art Film House in the region and do more than just attract local and national performers who will love to play this house.
The Colonial Fox Theatre will dovetail with the programming opportunities at Pittsburg’s Memorial Auditorium and Pittsburg State University’s Bicknell Family Center for the Arts by offering cultural and fine and performing arts organizations the opportunity to expand their programming options for presentation in our unique space.
A recent economic impact study estimates the Colonial Fox Theatre will potentially increase retail sales by nearly $16 million over a ten year period. The same study estimates the Theatre will generate nearly $337,131 of city and county sales tax over that same period.
