Owner description: The Fabulous Fox Theatre first opened in 1929 as a movie palace in William Fox's motion picture empire. The theatre was reopened in 1982, and today it is one of the most exquisite venues in the country to enjoy live touring Broadway shows, concerts, and comedians. We hope you'll visit us for an upcoming show or one of our guided tours!

“The glamour of yesteryear”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Ornate and grandiouse! This is the place to put on your fancy clothes and make a night of it. Not only do they get great performers here, but the theatre itself is a big draw! The architecture and gilding of old time theatres is still here.

“Absolutely wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is a beautiful well restored old theater that is amazing to visit. We came to see Wicked, a terrific show, but seeing the theater at Christmas was a real treat in itself. They had a live organist playing carols for the lobby and the ambience was terrific!

This is one of my favorite places to see a concert. I never get tired of looking at the inner beauty of the place. A must see.

“Elegance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

The shows are wonderful and the surroundings elegant. Wish the seating was better. Sometimes you have to spend the entire time leaning to one side to see around the person in front of you.

“A great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

My wife and I saw STOMP here. Apart from the great show, the building itself is very cool. It has a similar architecture to other old theaters (like the Fox in Atlanta), but this building is even more impressive. I highly recommend catching a show here; the decor is something you must see.
