    I adore this place. I have never seen a bad show here (recently saw Damon Albarn from blur/Gorillaz) and the whole building just transports you somewhere magical.

    Atlanta is undeniably a rich historic center of the south, and a visit to the Fox Theatre might be the most exciting history stop you can take in Georgia’s big city.

    The theatre is now regularly home to concerts, comedians, and touring Broadway productions, but the fabulous Fox has not always been a home for success. In fact, during many of its early years and even later in its life, the Fox Theatre was a bastion for bad luck and poor timing.

    First opened in 1929, the theatre closed and declared bankruptcy just a little more than two years after it opened after the start of the Great Depression. A change in ownership helped the theatre become financially sound in the late 30s, and the Fox enjoyed three decades as a successful, beautiful cinema. During a slow period during the 1970s, the theatre was in danger of being demolished and replaced by a high rise, but was saved by a grassroots ‘Save the Fox’ campaign.

    Today, visitors are able to enjoy the classic, beautifully maintained theatre while viewing modern and nationally known performers and show. The Fox is almost guaranteed to host an exciting show during any Atlanta visit.

    One of the most beautiful theaters I've ever seen with a fascinating history (they have a real live "phantom") if you're in Midtown make sure you see a show or concert here!

    Beautiful venue! If you live in Atlanta, you must see a show there, otherwise you are missing out on an experience. Parking can be tricky, so be prepared to walk.

    A historic theatre in the midst of midtown Atlanta, the Fox is easily reached by public transportation (North Avenue MARTA station is nearby) and is withing walking distance of several hotels. The theatre is host to a wide variety of programs including concerts by world famous musicians and touring companies of Broadway musicals. The building itself is a work of art and is worth a visit. Tours are available. There are lots of excellent restaurants nearby, some offering pre-theatre menus.

    This is a gorgeous venue! The decor is opulent and has a Moroccan motif. I saw Bjork here several years ago and enjoyed this theatre immensely.
