Fox Theatre Review

One of a dwindling number of vintage movie palaces in the nation, the Fox was built in 1929 in a fabulous Moorish-Egyptian style. The interior's crowning glory is its ceiling, complete with moving clouds and twinkling stars above Alhambra-like minarets. Threatened by demolition in the 1970s, the Fox was saved from the wrecking ball by community activists. Today it hosts musicals, rock concerts, dance performances, and film festivals. Tours should be scheduled in advance.

    Splendidly ornate theater

    A big and splashily ornate theater complex dating from the Depression era, gleefully over the top with Egyptian and Moorish flourishes. Tons of interior ornament. Has large banquet rooms and a huge performance hall complete with ceiling cloud effects and twinkling lights mimicking stars. Tours are informative but infrequent and can cancel at the last minute -- check before you go.
