Melding culture, history, and architecture, the Fox Theatre is Atlanta’s performing arts hub, hosting everything from Broadway-style plays to rock concerts. The opulent theater was built in the 1920s and boasts mosque-like minarets, an Egyptian ballroom, and a ceiling made to resemble the night sky with twinkling stars.
The historic theater was restored to its original grandeur in the 1970s and is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Take a guided tour to learn about the theater’s journey from 1920s movie palace to near demolition and the community outcry that resulted in its rescue. For the full experience, book tickets to see a show in the 4,678-seat theater. With 300-plus yearly performances, it's easy to catch a show at the Fox.
