  • Whether movies or music, the Fox Theatre delivers

    The Fox Theatre in Atlanta is a restored movie palace turned cultural jewel; this National Historic Landmark holds a special place in Atlanta's heart. Originally intended to be the Yaarab Temple Shrine Mosque, the Fox Theatre Atlanta welcomed movie audiences for the first time on Christmas Day 1929. Although it enjoyed a successful career as a movie theater, the Fabulous Fox Theatre faced possible demolition until it was rescued by a nonprofit organization in the 1970s. Today, the Fox Theatre Atlanta welcomes 750,000 visitors a year to more than 300 performances and events.

    Five Reasons to Visit the Fox Theatre

    1. See a show. Aruably the best live entertainment venue in Atlanta. The Fox Theatre serves up a full menu of live performances, ranging from dance to opera to Broadway shows to rock concerts. In 2009, Billboard magazine ranked the Fox Theatre in Atlanta as "The #1 non-residency venue worldwide for the decade (5,000 seats or less)."
    2. Catch a Flick. In addition to live entertainment, The Fox Theatre shows movies! During the summer, a great way to beat the heat is the Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival, which features current and classic films.
    3. Meet the Mo. The "Mighty Mo" is a pipe organ with 4,000 pipes. Built at a cost of $42,000 in 1929, the pipe organ was valued at $400,000 50 years later. Audiences can hear the Fox's "Mighty Mo" before every Broadway performance, during the Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival and Atlanta Ballet's “Nutcracker.”
    4. Party down. The Fox Theatre is a great venue for weddings, meetings and parties. The Fox offers four different rooms to create your perfect Atlanta event, including beverage service, a full-service kitchen and more.
    5. Discover the Décor. Look up at the breathtaking blue ceiling that  twinkles with starlight and drifting clouds. One of the crystals in the ceiling is really a piece of a Coca-Cola bottle! The Moorish lobby and ballrooms will bring you back to the opulent 1920s, when extravagance and Egyptian influences were all the rage.
