About the Bob Hope Theatre
Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Stockton! The Bob Hope Theatre, known to some locals as “The Fox,” is an exciting entertainment destination and a beautifully restored piece of Stockton’s history. The recent renovation has created a wonderful space to enjoy not only local arts productions, film, dance, comedy and Broadway type entertainment, but also the latest in top name musical entertainment. The opening of the Fox on October 14, 1930 was one of the most grandiose events in the region. The Fox is the largest vaudeville house in California, with 2,170 seats. Fully renovated in late 1990s and early 2000s, the venue changed its name to the Bob Hope Theatre. Visitors can enjoy rich wood carvings and murals in the lobby and the main chamber. A 1928 Robert Morton theater organ, which was last played in the Seattle Fox Theatre over 50 years ago, was restored and donated to the theatre by The Friends of the Fox.
