Fox Archives: The Fox Newman Scoring Stage


The Fox Newman Scoring Stage, named after famed composer and Fox Music Director from 1939 to 1959 Alfred Newman, was constructed in 1928. It was designed by C.H. Muldorfer and built by George E. Miller before being converted to a scoring stage in 1936. During the past 81 years, a number of films and television series have been scored here.

Below are images from our photograph collection showcasing a few of the individuals who worked on this scoring stage and titles that were created there.

The Fox Archives is mandated to collect, catalog, preserve and make accessible the following assets of the 20th Century Fox studios: props, set decoration, photographs, art department and publicity materials from our film and television productions, and from the 20th Century Fox studio itself. We work primarily with internal Fox groups but also from time to time with outside organizations such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry.
