    One of a dwindling number of vintage movie palaces in the nation, the Fox was built in 1929 in a fabulous Moorish-Egyptian style. It's crowning glory is its ceiling, complete with moving clouds. Read more

    Plan where you will park before going and allow extra time. If you're planning to park nearby it will be difficult to move at the traffic lights when all the people are walking to the theater too.

    Plan a date night at the historic Fox Theatre. Ask Concierge to arrange a private tour for the two of you to see the inner workings of Atlanta’s favorite venues.

    Who doesn't love to invest energy in this superb facility? One tip for summer film celebration goers: No compelling reason to purchase tickets ahead of time. You will pay $4 overhead for open seating,

    No matter what you love, there’s a performance at this beloved landmark. After the show, stop by our hotel’s café to see framed photos of the graffiti from the walls of the theatre’s projection room. Read more

    Nice theatre I must admit. I saw the Opera Play here and Some French Comedy as well. Both times I really enjoyed myself. Great staple in Atlanta.

    Don't forget to check out the very ornate women's bathroom lounges on the 2nd floor and basement levels. Gorgeous antique pieces.

    Always always always buy the parking pass when you get your tickets. It will save you from spending a crazy amount when you get there and parking far away.

    There is a "Fox Theatre" exit off the train platform at the North Avenue station. It provides more shelter in bad weather and is a pleasant walking experience via 3rd Street. Read more

    The Lynyrd Skynyrd album 'One More From The Road' was recorded at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in July of 1976. It was recorded as an effort to help save the Fox. Looks like it was a success.

    Beautiful theatre. Take the time to just look around before a show. Make sure to walk towards the stage and look up.

    Use Ticketmaster's new "choose your seats" option and opt for THE AISLE SEAT! Especially if you're a big girl. It can get sort of cramped and hot in there.

    Their weather policy puts their bottomline ahead of the guests' safety. Cancelling 1 hour before the show during Snow Jam 2014, after saying show will go on, NO refund all day. Friend got in accident

    Sit in the upper balcony for Phantom. He runs right in front of you. Sit on the front 4 rows for snow during the Nutcracker Ballet. Visit the summer theater series for the organ rising from the floor.
