The historic Fox Theatre is one of Atlanta’s premiere venues for live entertainment. The Fox’s 4,678 seat theatre is booked more than 300 performances a year ranging from Broadway to rock to comedy to movies. In December 2009, Billboard Magazine ranked the Fox Theatre in Atlanta as "The #1 non-residency venue worldwide for the decade (5,000 seats or less)."
The Fox Theatre is located on Peachtree Street in the middle of the city. Not only is it on the National Historic Register, but it is one of the most beloved landmarks in the city because it is a real memory maker for the citizens of Atlanta. They may have come here to see their first performance or Broadway show, they had their first date here, and maybe even had their first kiss in the balcony. Our ballrooms are spectacular and have hosted everything from Sweet 16s to weddings and corporate events. We hold a special place in many people’s hearts, and we take that responsibility very seriously. We call it “The Fox Experience.” We hope you enjoy your experience here at the Fox!

Open Captioning for a Fully-Accessible Theatre
Open captioning makes live theatre performances accessible for the estimated 30 million audience members in the United States who are hard of hearing and deaf. By using a non-intrusive caption board at the front of the House which scrolls the entire text of the production, open captioning provides enjoyment for audience members who are not self-identified as hard of hearing or who merely wish to catch a missed word or phrase. The "passive assistance" nature of open captioning allows patrons to enjoy captioning discretely, as part of the general audience at large - without requiring special equipment or knowledge of American Sign Language.
To reserve Open Captioning seats at the Fox Theatre, guests may either visit the Fox Theatre Box Office, or contact the Director of Patrons with Special Needs at (404) 881-2118
Please arrive early. If you are late, you may be held out or reseated until an appropriate time for you to get to your assigned seat. People who arrive late disturb the performers on stage and audience members. It is best to arrive about 30 minutes early so that you have time to purchase concessions, find your seat, and read the program before the show starts.
Please silence or turn off all electronic devices, including cell phones, beepers, and watch alarms.
Most shows do not allow photography of any kind. Flash photography inside the theatre is never allowed as it is a distraction to those around you and a danger to the performers.
Go easy with the perfume and cologne, many people are highly allergic.
If you need assistance during the show, please go to your nearest volunteer usher. If additional assistance is needed the usher will get the appropriate person to further help you.
Outside food and beverage is not allowed in The Fox Theatre.
Use discretion when selecting shows that are appropriate for your children. Aside from the content, Broadway shows can be a long time for a child to sit still and they may disrupt other audience members.
Children and Live Theatre
Attending a live theatre performance can be a magical and memorable experience for even young children. Done well, you will be planting the seeds of appreciation in a young patron for a love of live theatre. Done poorly, you can create an awful experience for your child and the people seated around you.
First, take time to select the proper show for your child to see. It would be unfair to ask your child to behave their best if you have selected a show that would bore them or that they do not understand. By order of the Fire Marshall, every child who attends, regardless of age, must have their own ticket. In some cases it might be cheaper to hire a babysitter and make it a date night instead. Infants should always be left at home, as there's no distraction quite like a crying baby.
Here are some general guidelines that should be mentioned prior to attending a live performance to prepare your child to present the proper behavior everyone will be expecting from him or her:
- They will be expected to be quiet, sit still in their own chair, and not disturb others around them by talking or fidgeting.
- They will need to keep their feet on the floor, not on the seats around them. They should not kick the chair in front of them or stand during the performance.
- They should not leave the theatre except during intermission and only with their parent(s) or guardian.
- They should use the restroom before the performance or during intermission and only with their parent(s) or guardian.
- They may applaud when appropriate.
Also mention to your children that the theatre will be dark at times and sudden bursts of sounds may happen.If your child becomes restless, frightened, or very loud, please take them to the lobby. Please remember that our lobby is not sound proof and loud noise will travel into the theatre. You may always ask an usher to reseat you towards the back of the theatre/balcony.
