Fodor's Review

An art-deco movie palace built in 1928, the Fox sat decaying and mostly unused for decades until the last of several redevelopment schemes culminated in a stunning renovation. The Mediterranean Moorish–style theater and its attached buildings contain the main theater, these days used for music concerts; the Oakland School for the Arts; and the Den, a gorgeous lounge. The theater's restoration helped revive what's now known as the Uptown neighborhood.
