VenueThe historic Fox Theatre is one of Atlanta’s premiere venues for live entertainment. The Fox’s4,678 seat theatre is booked more than 300 performances a year ranging from Broadway to rockto comedy to movies. The Fox opened as the Great Depression began. After 125 weeks oftalking pictures and elaborate stage entertainment, the theatre declared bankruptcy. After atemporary revival through city ownership, the Fox scraped by during the 1930s. The interior wasa masterpiece of trompe loeil. From false beams, balconies, and tents to the ornate grillworkhiding air conditioning and heating ducts virtually every practical feature was disguised withartistic fantasy.
