Fox Theatres always hold a special spot in roadside lore. Neon theatre signage such as this one at the Fox Theatre still lights up the night in downtown Tucson, AZ.

The Globe Theatre in the Arizona town of Globe is still open for business
and showing movies. Not quite sure how far back this theatre in the main
part of Globe dates back to.

UPDATE 10/06 : The historic Globe Theater was built 1917 in the art deco style. Art deco murals were painted on the wall of the interior one-screen theater. The balcony was beautiful. The theater also featured locally mined copper-covered pillars under the marquee. After the devastating fire, Globe-Miami's own Globe Theater is being rebuilt.
The theater will be built over the lot of the building next store that was the Trust/Hotel building. The new GLOBE will be built with four screens and stadium seating. A brick face will surround the theater using some of the original bricks from the Hotel. The marquee is being spruced up a bit; the original marquee was changed in the 1960's-1970, but is being put back to the original design with neon lighting all around the historic sign. After the restoration of the marquee, the marquee will be place on the corner of Broad and Cedar Streets. This an exciting move forward for this historic small-town community.
