What a lovely, historical building....excited to see the always mesmerizing Alvin Ailey Dance Group there on a recent excursion to Atlanta. Thrilled to actually see one of Atlanta’s “Tiny Doors” located around the base of the original ticket booth. We purchased orchestra seating but had difficulty in seeing the show. Several tall people were in front of us and the physical incline of the orchestra seating was minimal. We were constantly moving our heads from side to side to try and see the stage but without success. Luckily, the people to the right of me left the show at intermission so everyone moved over a few seats. Unless there is a physical renovation of the building, I would not recommend seating in this area.....unless you are extremely tall and don’t care about your fellow attendees. The concession staff was friendly and helpful but one of the ushers was very rude. I will opt for mezzanine seating the next time I travel to this lovely venue for a show.

We’ve been season ticket holders in the Center Orchestra section at The Fox for about 5 years. We love the theater for its historical significance, décor, and the wonderful Broadway shows it hosts. Parking can be a challenge. Expect to pay $20-$30 for a lot close to the theater. I would recommend either the Georgian Grille across the street (go early and get a bite to eat there) or there is another covered parking deck (Lanier Parking) a block and half north of The Fox. Park at the bottom level for the quickest exit.

We’ve changed our season seats once or twice over the years to move closer or to avoid being seated behind another season ticket holder with a large (albeit lovely & totally proportionate) noggin. The problem we’ve noticed is that all the seats (at least in the orchestra section) are not graded and staggered enough to allow for optimal viewing. Despite being average height at 5’5”, I’m still tempted to request one of the booster seats they give the kids, so I don’t have to crane my neck around the person in front of me. So while our seats are good seats overall, they can present challenges if you’re not tall. I’ve read other reviews which say there’s not a bad seat in the house which is not accurate. We’ve sat in other seats (far left or right orchestra) which did not allow you to see all of the stage or the actors on it. All that aside, we love the Fox and will continue to purchase season tickets. It’s a wonderful Atlanta landmark with a history and nostalgia that should be cherished. But updated seating would be nice.

My wife and I did a staycation for a Little Big Town Concert. We bought the VIP pass to enjoy the pre shown food. Nice variety of items to snack on. It was a nice night so we took in the rooftop level. Cash bar, high end wine by the glass is aliitle pricey but manager gave up a free pour when bottle ran out. Thearter is great - nice seats, nice audio system, nearby parking is going to cost you - saw a sign for event parking - $30. Great place to take in a concert.

We've been season ticket holders of the Broadway performances for years and starting to question renewing next year for the first time. The sound system is just AWFUL!!!! Both "Wicked," "Cats" and "The Band's Visit" had massive sound problems that detract terribly from the performance. Whether it's the traveling company or Fox system - please, please, please get this fixed!!!!

Unfortunately, the volunteer ushers at this theater do not control the crowd. If you don’t mind people blocking your view, walking up and down the isles and being seated in front of you all throughout the show then you won’t mind visiting this theater. The theater itself is beautiful the shows are sometimes top-notch. Hamilton was excellent except for the fact that our view was blocked on and off throughout the show by people coming and going from their seats at will without any restrictions. There’s nothing so annoying as having someone stand up in front of you holding their tub of popcorn during the most emotional scene of a musical that you’ve been waiting a year to see.
In addition the massive lines for the bathroom and the concessions were made worse in the past few years by the Fox theater taking a section of the general concessions and restroom area to create an exclusive marquee club for which they charge a premium price, leaving fewer restrooms and concession stands for the rest of the customers.

I have been lucky to see performances on Broadway in NYC, London's West End, Chicago, and other great theaters, and nothing compares to the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. Perhaps I have a sentimental attachment, as I helped save this grand building from the wrecking ball during the 1970's "Save the Fox" fund-raising campaign. But the Fox is truly a grand venue. The seats are roomy and comfortable, with unobscured sight lines. The sound is superb. The decor is exquisite. There are enough restrooms (barely) for everyone to take a bio-break during intermisison (Ladies, head quickly to the basement restroom!). The one downside is parking in the area - which is expensive and a bit of a walk.

We have taken the ghost tour of the Fox Theater which I highly recommend for visitors and natives alike. Historical information presented in a fun fashion that all ages would enjoy. Interesting to see the "back of the house" and the inner workings.

Had the privilege of seeing Vince Gill and the Eagles here last year. The interior was a well preserved grand hall from the past, but the piece de resistance was the ceiling that was curved and painted to give the illusion that you were outside. It was a very peasant phenomenon, that words don't do justice! Have tried to return for another show but the billing has met my liking, seems to cater to up and coming bands, etc.
There are many nice restaurants within walking distance. If you go, try to sat a night or two at Stonehurst B and B nearby. Also near the Aquarium and the Civil rights museum...

Many grand international cities have historic theatres unique for something - accoustics, architecture on inside or outside, multiple uses other than as theatres during their lives, historical performances, etc. The Fox is one of these theatres. The Fox is sometimes confused as the theatre hosting the premier of Gone with the Wind (it was actually premiered in globally in Atlanta in the now torn-down Loew's theatre). However, the Fox has hosted many stage shows, live theatre, Broadway productions, and concerts over its many years. It was opened only 2 months after the 1929 stock market crash and closed 125 weeks later, but eventually re-opened and refurbished. Great place to attend any event on the calendar.

The Fox Theatre in Atlanta is one of the most beautiful theaters in the world to me. The acoustics and the seating are top notch. The events manager consistently fills the Fox with a wide variety of events and shows that appeal to the greater community of Atlanta as well as drawing folks from the greater region of the Southeast.

The theater is kept clean and the furnishings and artifacts preserved beautifully. Unfortunately the tour leaves a bit to be desired mainly, I believe, because the particular tour guide I had was not as proficient in the history of the theater as she could have been. But the tour still afforded a nice overview of all of the rooms and parts of this unique one-of-a-kind theater. Thank you to the preservationists who saw the beauty in The Fox and saved it for the rest of us to enjoy!
