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. In 1929, Fox West Coast Theaters invests nearly half a million dollars to build a luxurious, safe and comfortable theater - the Fox California, or the Fox. The opening of the Fox on October 14, 1930, is one of the most grandiose events in the region. The Fox is the largest vaudeville house in California, with 2,170 seats. The theatre is also one of the safest buildings of the time, built entirely with cement and steel, with the ability to evacuate guests within two minutes. One of the jewels of the theatre is the $40,000 (in 1930) three manual Wurlitzer pipe organ with twin pipe lofts. Fully renovated in late 1990s and early 2000s, the theatre changed its name to the Bob Hope. Visitors can enjoy rich wood carvings and murals in the lobby and the main chamber. The original water feature in the lobby was replaced with a water-themed marble mosaic. 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. Organ concerts take place before classic movie showings which are featured on the 2nd Friday of the month throughout the year.To take a tour of the theatre contact 209-337-HOPE or 209-464-5246. « less

Built in 2005, in Downtown Stockton, also the same place where Lawrence Thayer wrote his famous poem "Casey at the Bat" took place. Banner Island is quite the sight for new comers, located next to Stockton's deep water channel, and the Downtown Stockton skyline. Banner Island is a great place for family fun!

The history of Filipinos in Stockton extended much greater than these three buildings. Little Manila once spanned more than four city blocks, and only these three original buildings, the Iloilo Circle and the Dimasalang House, and the Daguhoy Lodge remain. Since so much of our physical history has been bulldozed, we need places that connect us to our past. To see historical buildings, touch their walls, and share the space in which our foreparents lived, partied, slept, ate, planned, worked, and fought to make a better life is to experience part of them. People travel and visit historic neighborhoods, because it is a much more meaningful experience than to look at old pictures, only to wish the buildings and neighborhood still existed. To preserve our past is to connect with our early story as Filipino Americans. Is is a story of love, sacrifice and hope. It is our story to learn... and share. « less
