    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    The theatre opened on December 25, 1929, just two months after the stock market crash. The Fox hosted the premiere of Walt Disney's Song of the South in 1946. Disney himself introduced the picture.

    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.

    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.

    Arrive up to an hour before and make sure to use the bathroom 30 mins before the show is scheduled to start! The women's bathroom lines are insane!

    An hour before almost every show there is an organ concert on the historic Moller organ. If you stand up front by the rail, you can give requests.
