And be sure to buy your ticket ahead of time. We showed up early for the 10am tour on Saturday morning only to find the tour was already sold out. Who knew? Luckily the manager allowed us to buy 2 tix and join the tour, but another couple who arrievd after us (before the tour) was not so lucky. If you like old movie palaces or concert venues, this is a must see. There is an elevator for part of the tour, but also some stairs required to see the balcony, so mobility could be an issue.

I loved the theater itself but did not learn anything new on the tour that I did not already know. The women who gave the tour was pleasant but was not incredibly knowledgeable about the theater or history of Atlanta itself. Just was great to get inside and see the wonderful original fixtures and furniture.

Unfortunately there were no events or shows at the theater while we were in town, However we were fortunate that the Fox offers tours on Mondays and Thursdays. tours are around $18 a piece for about one hour. Seeing this theater from the outside simply does not do justice as this is an architectural wonder and gem! It was built in the late 20's and opened Christmas Day in 1929. The building has been beautifully restored and kept up. The Egyptian / Arabic design is unique (originally built for the Shriners) you will definitely appreciate this building. A must see while in atlanta!

The tour of the old theater backstage is a real step back in time. The organ is the star attraction, but as a venue, the acoustics are awful and the seats extremely uncomfortable. Try watching Lawrence of Arabia for 4 hours without cramping up.

I love going to anything the fox has to offer. The theater is just outstanding in its beauty!!! I love to get all dressed up and go to the plays and the shows. Just a great place to see things. Stay at the Georgian and walk across!!
