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.

The Fox Theatre, Atlanta Reviews - Write a Review
I absolutely love this place! The food and beverages are higher than average because it's a supreme theatre! However, that does not hinder the fact that the Fox Theatre has earned 5 stars all the way around! I would recommend this theatre to anyone looking for an experience of a lifetime!
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.
My wife and I took the Ghost Tour of the fabulous Fox. We loved it. We were able to walk through areas you don't see in the regular tours, including the lower levels where they have props, the mechanicals for raising and lowering the stages and even some of the dressing rooms. It was fun, and for my wife, a theater advocate, a great time. Alas, no ghosts this time. Well worth the time and price. Thank you.
What a beautiful theatre! My wife and I went to see The Phantom- loved the show! Our seats were great. Everything about our experience was wonderful- beautiful facilities, helpful and kind staff, and nearby parking.
Love this beautiful theater! From the exterior to the interior, there are picture worthy places all over. I highly recommend going to see a show here if you’re visiting, and convincing a friend to buy season tickets if you’re local. 😉
