FOX FUN FACTS COURTESY OF THE FOX THEATRE

MOVIE PALACE HISTORY Atlanta’s Fox Theatre was one of five “Crown Jewel” Fox Theatres. The other four were located in Brooklyn, San Francisco, Detroit, and St. Louis. All these theatres were atmospheric in their design and décor. Here are some other fun facts: • William Fox was born in Hungary and moved to America as a child. He later became a movie mogul with theatres around the country. He wanted to own a theatre in Atlanta and liked the exotic design of the Shriners’ headquarters, so he agreed to lease the auditorium from them. This gave the Shriners enough money to pay for the building’s construction. • The Fox opened December 25, 1929, and tickets cost between 15 and 75 cents. Two shows were advertised – one at 1:30 p.m. and the other at 8:30 p.m. – and included Walt Disney’s cartoon Steamboat Willie and the feature film Salute. • The Fox was one of the first examples of theatres designed to accommodate wide screens. The screen was 80 feet wide, 4 feet wider than the Roxy Theatre in New York. 28

• The Fox was equipped with state of the art technology, including three projectors (most theatres had just one or two) and speakers to amplify sound for the new “talkie” movies. The Fox converted to digital movie projectors in the 2000s. The new projectors sit beside the original equipment they replaced. • Disney movie, Song of the South, premiered at the Fox on November 12, 1946. Walt Disney himself came to the premiere. • The Fox Theatre was known as the “Disney Theatre” because it was the first theatre in Atlanta to screen Walt Disney Studio’s family-friendly movies Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Peter Pan, and Lady and the Tramp. • Today, the Fox still shows movies over the summer as a part of the Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival, during the winter at Mighty Mo & More and other special occasions.
