The Fox Tucson Theatre is looking for help selecting its summer classic film series.
Last summer 27 films were screened in the Fox's first-ever summer classic film series. To help determine the films this summer a ballot is now available at http://foxtucsontheatre.org/ballot.php and at the theatre, 17 West Congress downtown.
Nominees include Dr. Strangelove, West Side Story, On The Waterfront and more recent classics like Footloose and Shawshank Redemption.
The top voted films will be screened at the Fox on weekends this summer.
The deadline for ballots to be submitted in March 31st. The final schedule of films will be announced in late April.
"We think that the Fox is the best place to see a classic film and some shows last summer were near sellouts," says Fox Tucson Theatre Foundation executive director Herb Stratford. "We want to let people experience their favorites in the Fox."
The 1929 Fox Tucson Theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
