The historic Fox Theatre is located on Peachtree Street in Midtown Atlanta and serves as an iconic landmark for locals and visitors alike. Guests can experience everything from Broadway shows to concerts to comedy shows to even reality show auditions at the venue. It boasts the residence of the largest working Möller theatre organ in the world, "Mighty Mo," which can be experienced prior to Broadway shows and other select events.
Parking and public transportation at the Fox Theatre
The Fox does not own a parking lot, but many private lots are available in the surrounding area. For public transportation, go to the MARTA North Avenue Station and walk two blocks east to the theatre.
Best and worst time to go to the Fox Theatre
It is always recommended to purchase tickets in advance for any shows/events as many sell out quickly. The proximity to Midtown and Downtown Atlanta makes traveling to the Fox during rush hour a challenge, so it is advisable to check traffic patterns.
