n Christmas Day 2019, the Fox Theatre celebrated its 90th anniversary. Since its opening day in 1929, the Fox has been home to stories: stories told on stage and screen, stories of arts-filled experiences for Atlantans and visitors, and the theatre’s own stories of perseverance through times of uncertainty.

Originally conceived as home for the Atlanta Shriners Organization in 1928, the building that now stands as the Fox Theatre was designed to showcase prominent social status. The outstanding design aimed to resemble an ancient temple with intricate patterns. In 1929, the Fox Theatre was leased to movie mogul William Fox, who instead opened the theatre as a striking movie palace to a sold-out crowd on Christmas Day of 1929.

closure at the hands of urban disinvestment, motivated Atlantans launched the “Save The Fox” campaign – an unforgettable civic endeavor. Volunteers raised more than $3 million by collecting donations from public and private groups, organizing benefit concerts featuring acts from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Liberace, and even collecting pennies from local businesses. After months of painstaking restoration efforts, the Fox Theatre proudly reopened its doors in 1975. The Fox has remained steadfastly sewn into the fabric of Atlanta ever since. Today, it remains one of the city’s most cherished landmarks and a beacon of hope for ongoing historic preservation efforts as many other would-be landmarks remain in peril. The story of Atlanta cannot be told without including the history of the Fox Theatre.

“The Fox is a vessel of many, many stories – stories behind its history and how it was built, stories with every individual and every couple that walks through its doors,” said President and CEO Allan Vella. “We are celebrating by bringing the community a way to embrace its impact over the years. It’s our way to show Atlanta that this cherished theater is not only irreplaceable… it’s theirs.” Part of this 90th anniversary celebration includes a brand-new storytelling campaign: “I Am the Fox.” This campaign will highlight the Fox’s rich history and iconic status throughout Georgia with commercials featuring notable Atlantans and local community members who embody the city’s undeniable love for the Fox Theatre.

In 1939, Walt Disney came to Atlanta and bought the rights to the Uncle Remus stories from the family of Joel Chandler Harris. On November 12, 1946, Disney’s Song of the South, based on those tales, worldpremiered at the Fox Theatre.

“The Fox is not just an entertainment venue. It’s part of Atlanta’s soul,” said Jamie Vosmeier, vice president of sales and marketing at the Fox Theatre. “For the first time, we’ve taken the opportunity to allow the Fox to tell her own story, in the first person. The magic within these walls is getting to be shared in a way that’s not been communicated before now.” For more information on “I Am the Fox” and the Fox Theatre, visit bit.ly/IAmTheFox. DID YOU KNOW? The Fox Theatre Institute (FTI), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of historic theaters, recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary by raising over $100,000 at the “Revival” benefit concert on September 13, 2019. To date, FTI has given more than $1 million to historic venues throughout the region.

THE FOX THEATRE

1. Please arrive early. Latecomers may not be seated until intermission. 2. Take care of personal needs (water, restroom use) before the performance begins. 3. Please silence or turn off all electronic devices, including cellphones, beepers and watch alarms. We encourage you to share your experience via social media but please refrain from doing so or texting during performances. The glow from your device is distracting. 4. Most shows do not allow photography of any kind. Flash photography inside the theater is never allowed. It distracts those around you and endangers the performers. 5. The overture is part of the performance. Please cease talking at this point. 6. Dear lovebirds, when you lean your heads together, you block the view of those behind you. Please consider those seated behind you when choosing whether to wear a hat or what hairstyle you choose. 7. Please refrain from talking, humming or singing along with the show, except when encouraged to do so by the artists or show.

11. Yes, the parking lot gets busy and public transportation is tricky, but leaving while the show is in progress or before the actors have taken their final bows is discourteous. Please wait until the bows are over and exit with the rest of the audience.

40 | encore FOX FUN FACTS A DAY OF SNOWFLAKES, MICKEY MOUSE, THE MIGHTY MO AND MEMORIES

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE FOX THEATRE

The Fox Theatre had its grand opening on a snowy Christmas Day in 1929, just two months after the stock market crash that led to the Great Depression. The crowd stretched around the block. Atlantans saw the theater as an escape from worry about their futures. Here are a few other facts and figures from that day 90 years ago. • Opening day tickets for shows cost 15 cents to 75 cents. • The bejeweled “Aladdin” curtain commissioned by Eve Leo Fox, movie mogul William Fox’s wife, sparkled with rhinestones and sequins. It depicts a mosque and Moorish riders, and cost $30,000 to make (more than $400,000 today). • Iris Vining Wilkins, a tiny woman, played the Mighty Mo organ. Enrico Leide, a concert cellist and conductor of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (1920-30) led the Fox Grand Orchestra in “This Shrine of Beauty.” • Opening night patrons saw a Fox Movietone News clip, the Walt Disney cartoon Steamboat Willie, and the feature film Salute, a story about the famous ArmyNavy football game, starring George O’Brien and Helen Chandler. Master of ceremonies Don Wilkin led a sing-along. • Snowflakes, aka bleached cornflakes, fell from the ceiling at the end of the screening.
