Like many Fox’s around the country, Atlanta’s oldest theatre was originally owned by movie mogul William Fox—it opened in the late 1920s, showing black-and-white movies with sound played by an enormous Möller organ that remains in the theatre today. In the 1960s, the city’s arts and cultural patrons banded together to save the theatre in its current incarnation as a performing arts venue. It’s worth visiting for the ornate (and original) architectural details alone, but this is also the place to see dance, broadway shows, comedians, and live music.
