Richard A. Fox, proprietor of Fox Theaters and the final volunteer president of the National Association of Theatre Owners, died this weekend on the age of 90, in line with an announcement from NATO.
Born in Buffalo, New York, in 1929, Fox served as a workers sergeant within the U.S. Army earlier than launching the Fox Theatres chain in 1957. The chain started with the Sinking Spring Drive-In Theatre — identified for having the “world’s largest CinemaScope screen” — and expanded to 25 places in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Florida with over 100 mixed screens and over 1,000 staff.
In 1984, he was elected NATO president and “was a formidable leader of theatrical exhibition at a time when the industry wrestled with existential issues ranging from contentious trade practices to competition from new technologies,” in line with his household. His son, Donald, now serves as CEO of Fox Theatres.
In addition to Donald, Fox is survived by his spouse, Marcia, his son, Herrick, daughter Sheryl; sister Lee; former spouse Helen; seven grandchildren; three stepchildren; and 7 step-grandchildren. Donations in his identify will be made to the Howard Fox Memorial Law Scholarship Fund on the Berks County Community Foundation.
