Fox Theatre is not only overflowing with history, but an exceptionally beautiful venue. It is by far our favorite indoor venue ever. There are no bad seats, the acoustics are wonderful and the "stars" in the sky are rather amazing.

My boss had given me tickets to the ballet when I was in town. Not really my style but I decided to go anyway since the tickets were free and I didn?t have anything better to do with my time. The ballet was nice but the theatre wasn?t as great as I was expecting. I?m used to NY theatres where things are a little different. Concessions were basic, bathrooms were overcrowded and under stocked and the floors were in desperate need of a sweep or mop because my shoes kept sticking to the floor. Unfortunate because the d?cor inside is actually very nice.

2-3 years ago I booked a private tour of the Fox for my family - 28 of us - and it was easy and pleasant. I tried to do the same for this year's holiday gathering of the family and I've nearly pulled my hair out. Getting someone to call you back is the least of the Preservation's problems. Getting a straight answer, much less a timely answer is impossible. The Fox needs to take over management of these tours. The Preservation group is obviously on its last leg.

I see from another review that I'm not the only one going through hell to take a tour of the Fox. We were told that we'd have to arrange a privte tour because my brother cannot climb stairs (Mr. Shook of the Fox confirmed this). THIS STINKS. Because my brother cannot climb stairs we have to pay an additional fee for a tour.

The Fox is wonderful. Our family has enjoyed many events there. We've taken friends and family on the guided tours. Recently we wanted to take our kids, visitors from out of town and their kids on a tour. It would have been easier to re-finance my home than it was to get information from the people who manage the tours. We decided to go to the History Center instead.

Wow! I have only been here once, but am in love with the place. I saw CATS here a while back - and okay, yes, the show - ROCKED - of course.
But the FOX itself is beautiful. Classy. Fun. Wonderful interior - and all the staff are friendly and helpful if you get lost (yeah I did).

Most Atlantan's know the story of this Yaarab Temple-cum-movie house-cum theatre that nearly bit the dust on more than one occasion. Now regarded as one of the premier performance arts theatres of its class, the Fabulous Fox hosts touring Broadway shows, legendary concerts, ballet, performance art, and even weddings and proms. Other Moorish-themed rooms within the great space, including the Egyptian Ballroom and the Grand Salon, host private events year round. The volunteer ushers couldn't be friendlier, and the non-profit organization brings in wonderful cultural events to our fair city. Make sure you arrive early to catch the ""Mighty Mo"" organ, and don't forget to look up to notice the twinkling stars above.

I've been to many events at the Fabulous Fox and I can always count on a wonderful evening in a beautiful historic landmark that seems almost timeless. The Fox is definetly one of Atlanta's greatest treasures to be preserved and enjoyed for generations to come.
