Opened in 1939 as a 20th Century Fox Movie House, the Tower Theatre today is completely restored as a center for the performing arts.  Considered to be the finest facility of its kind in California, the Tower Theatre boasts an authentic art deco theme throughout.

Some of the recent artist that have preformed here are Lindsey Buckingham, Leo Kottke, Dave Mason, Peter White, Mindi Abair, Dave Koz, Jonny Lang, Robben Ford, Jesse Cook, Yngwie Malmsteen, Tommy Emmanuel, Barry McGuire, Postmodern Jukebox, Judy Collins, Kris Kristofferson, Clint Black, Travis Tritt, Adam Carolla, and Bobby Bones.

The Tower Theatre is noted for being one of several suburban theater designs that S. Charles Lee devised to show film industry executives a new look in commercial movie theaters. It was profiled shortly after its completion in a lavishly illustrated article in Motion Picture Herald.

As Fresno’s first suburban cinema, The Tower Theatre became the dominant vertical landmark anchoring a loosely-knit collection of shops that had been developing into a lively shopping area since 1923. The theatre was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.

Anchored by the theatre, Fresno’s Tower District has seen a booming resurgence with many eclectic restaurants and clubs opening within a four mile radius.
