The Fox theater is one of the most interesting places in Atlanta, not only because of its history, but also because it's an important performing arts venue today.

The theater was built to be part of a mosque, as testified by the Moorish design of the building. In the end, it became a lavish movie theater seating around 5000 people, and nowadays it is the chosen venue for the shows of the Atlanta ballet, as well as touring Broadway shows.

Some of the most interesting rooms of the former theater are the Egyptian Ballroom, inspired by the temple of Ramses II at Karnak, and the Ladies Lounge at the mezzanine.

660 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA
