The theatre opened on December 25, 1929, just two months after the stock market crash. The Fox hosted the premiere of Walt Disney's Song of the South in 1946. Disney himself introduced the picture.
This opulent historic landmark presents shows by Broadway in Atlanta & Theater of the Stars, as well as a Summer Movie series. The Atlanta Ballet performs its holiday season fave “The Nutcracker.”

In 1974, Mayor Marynard Jackson (OC resident) refused to sign the paperwork needed to demolish the Fox and on July 10th of that year held the first "Save the Fox" meeting at Herren's restaurant.
