Description:

Today, the Fox is priceless, and would be impossible to rebuild. The discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922 launched a worldwide fascination with Egyptian décor. The results can be seen interwoven with the Moorish décor of the Fox. The theatre's enormous Bedouin canopy overhang is really a work of plaster and steel rods that not only serves as ornamentation, but also as an acoustical funnel to project sound to the rear of the house. The Fox Theatre can seat up to 4,678 patrons. The beguiling sky is actually a vaulted ceiling painted ultramarine blue. The twinkling stars are 11-watt bulbs fixed above three-inch crystals. The drifting clouds are produced by a special projector. The Fox Theatre ballrooms have hosted receptions and special events for visiting ambassadors, noted U.S. politicians, and internationally acclaimed dignitaries. An estimated 750,000 people visit the Fox Theatre every year. Until 1995, coal was used to heat the steam boilers in case of emergency. The Fox still houses the original steam boilers today. The Fox Theatre was one of the earliest air conditioned buildings in the country, even preceding the White House. The Fox Theatre serves more than four and a half tons of popcorn each year.
