The Fabulous Fox Theatre is one of the top Atlanta Venues along with being one of our city’s greatest treasures. Each year the Fox Theatre Atlanta is host to several Atlanta Events including Broadway plays, classic entertainment, and first-rate headline shows.
Travel to the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Ga. today, and take a step back in time. It was originally designed as a Yaarab Temple Shrine Mosque. It was a sign of the excesses of the 20′s as the Shriner’s ill-fated plan caused them to work out a deal with William Fox.
On December 25, 1929, the Atlanta Fox Theatre opened to great fanfare, a little more than a month after the Stock Market’s crash. It was a testament to the grand movie palaces that marked the era. Now The Fox is a National Historic Landmark as well as one of the most famous Atlanta Landmarks. This grand theater has stood the test of time as evidenced by having survived bankruptcy, foreclosure, age, and the great depression.
An estimated 750,000 people visit the Fabulous Fox Theatre each year. Patrons have included movie stars, politicians, ambassadors, and international dignitaries such as Prince Charles.
Tour the Atlanta Fox Theatre today and you will see it as it was then. A grand Moorish designed building of impeccable ornate work complete with twinkling stars, moving clouds, and remarkable acoustics.
