History behind the Fox Hotel.

During the 1920s, a group of Ponce residents who regularly met at the home of Pedro Juan Serrallés to enjoy silent movies decided there was a need for a theater in the town. In 1928, Pedro Juan Serrallés acquired a property facing Las Delicias Plaza for the purpose of building a theater.The former Fox Delicias Theater, designed by Ponce architect Francisco Porrata Doria, was inaugurated in 1931.


The name Fox Delicias arose from a contract with the film production company Twentieth Century Fox and the theater’s location in front of Las Delicias Plaza. For generations, it was Ponce’s main stage for shows and its movie theater. It was later sold, which undertook a renovation of the theater in 1989 for the purpose of converting it to business space.


The Architecture of the building present an eclectic style that combines Art Deco, Neo-classical and Moorish elements. Its essentially modernist. The theater also presents certain motifs that evoke an oriental air.


Through these images one can take in the beauty and novelty of a boutique hotel much needed for those who want to travel trough the island, specifically to the beautiful south side of Puerto Rico.
