The Fox Performing Arts Center is now presenting its ‘Summer in the City’ entertainment schedule. In conjunction with the City of Riverside's Star Trek Exhibition at the Metropolitan Showcase in Downtown, the Fox Performing Arts Center will begin the summer with 3:00 p.m. matinee showings of ten Star Trek movies Saturdays and Sundays from June 26 through August 1.

Celebrating a special occasion in the history of Riverside, the Fox will be presenting a special onenight showing of “Gone with the Wind”, offering patrons a chance to relive the first unveiling of this epic classic which was originally previewed as an unfinished print to the first test audience at the Riverside Fox on September 9, 1939.

In addition to movies and the previously announced one night performance of “American Pie” singer-songwriter Don McLean, Fox Performing Arts Center welcomes Eddie Money on July 29th for a single 8:00 p.m. show.

Money, who’s musical career began in the late1960s, has sold over 28 million records since that time. He is well known for a variety of classic rock hits including “Baby Hold On” “Two Tickets to Paradise” and “Think I’m in Love”. With multiple Platinum records under his belt and the introduction of MTV, Money’s over-the-top narrative videos made him a household name by the early 1980’s. In 1986, his duet with Ronnie Spector, “Take Me Home Tonight”, reached number 4 on the Billboard Top 100.

The Fox Performing Arts Center is one of Riverside’s most revered landmarks. In January 2010, after two years of restoration, the City re-opened the Fox as a 1642-seat state-of-the-art performing arts center for Riverside and the Inland Empire. Now the Fox is host to award-winning artists, singersongwriters, comedians, entertainers and Broadway shows which kicked off in January with Grammy Award-winning artist Sheryl Crow.

Tickets are on sale now at Tickermaster www.ticketmaster.com and the Fox Box Office. Ticket prices range from $25 to $67 for Don McLean and Eddie Money, plus $4 facility fee. Tickets for all summer movies are $9. For more information about the schedule and tickets, visit www.FoxRiversideLive.com or contact the Fox Box Office at 951- 779-9800.
