Fox Theatre highlights

One of the most impressive aspects of the Fox Theatre is its unique design. It was originally built as a Shrine Temple, so it boasts a Moorish style unlike any buildings that surround it. Inside, you'll find a 4,665-seat auditorium with lavish surroundings.

If you see a show at this theatre that features the organ, you're sure to be impressed. Named Mighty Mo, this theatre organ boasts impressive and massive pipes with the largest being around 32 feet long. The organ can mimic just about every sound in a full orchestra, as well as a gong, sleigh bells, drums, xylophone, marimba, and glockenspiel.

Good to know when visiting the Fox Theatre

When you visit the Fox Theatre, keep a few things in mind. Many people like to dress up in fancy clothes to go to the theatre, but it's not a strict requirement.
