The Fabulous Fox Theater of Detroit

© All rights reserved.


The Fox Theater, in near continuous operation since its opening in 1928, is one of many movie palaces that once dotted the city of Detroit. Now it is only one of a few.


Unfortunately a first-run movie cannot be seen in a movie palace such as this in the city of Detroit. One must go to a multiplex to view a movie without the gilded plaster, ushers, organ preludes, or even a curtain. What is settled for today is cheap, characterless cinderblock boxes that may have disappointing sound and projection .


Architect: C. Howard Crane. Restored in 1988 and is open for various live shows.
