On Thursday they announced the 90th Celebration of the Fox Theater.

There will be four different events throughout the year which are themed in the 1920's.

A Bootlegger Party will kick-off the bash on September 27th for the opening night of 'Drinking Habits'.

There's also a Birthday Bash in November, a Trivia Night in March and another event in the spring which will be announced later this year.

North Platte Community Playhouse Board Member Sue McKain said she didn't grow up in North Platte but has an appreciation for the Fox.

"I love history and the architecture is so unique. Many of these old theaters have gone by the wayside," said McKain.

"It's really special that North Platte still has a building in use and is as gorgeous as it is."
