About The Fox Theatre, Atlanta
It’s a marvel that this theatre survived all the years since 1929, when it was built. It was originally intended to be a Shrine, then utilized for a movie palace. The changing movie industry almost rendered the place obsolete, and developers were planning on tearing it down when locals, community and celebrity alike, raised a campaign to preserve this historical monument in the 1970’s.
Thus saved and then undergoing a massive restoration project, the eccentric and other worldly Fox Theatre looks more or less like it did in when it was first built. It’s the best live entertainment venue in Atlanta and a terrific film venue to boot.
That’s not all, you can hire the place out for weddings, events and other parties, and giving you company in all this revelry is the Mighty Mo, a 4000 pipe organ valued at half a million dollars. Islamic and Egyptian architectural influences are prominently evident, it internal ceiling is awash with stars, and few decorations are quite what they seem.

This is such a gorgeous theatre! I love the interior design and decor. It can hold a lot of people, but having experienced the very last row, I'm convinced there's not a single bad seat in the house. I've seen several shows at this venue, and they're usually pretty good at getting everyone seated before curtain time to avoid distraction when the show starts. However the last performance I saw of The King & I, people were still milling about to their seats well past 15 minutes into the show-very distracting. Otherwise I would give 5 stars.
Saw The King and I on a Saturday afternoon. All of the staff were very helpful and took me directly to my seat. The theater is beautiful and worth visiting even if just for a tour. Perfect venue for live entertainment!
Incredibly beautiful venue--like none other, in my opinion. Shows are top notch and the staff is always kind and helpful. I grew up coming to shows at The Fox and hope to one day continue the tradition with my own children.
This stunning Atlanta gem is always a special treat whether attending Broadway shows, concerts, or events is the beautiful Egyptian ballroom. I'm mesmerized by it's beauty every time. Looking forward to the new Marquee Club opening in 2018!
Always a great experience at the Fox! There is not a more beautiful theater. The architecture is amazing. The staff are not only great at their jobs, but they are all extremely friendly! Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to get there - Atlanta traffic is always heavy.
