Located on Woodward Avenue in downtown Detroit, the Fox Theatre is a historic theater that opened in 1928. With more than 5,000 seats, the Fox Theatre is the largest surviving movie palace from the 1920s. It was designated as a National Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The theatre is rather grandiose; there are three levels of seating, and the interior is ornately decorated with Burmese, Chinese, Indian, and Persian themes. During its long history, several acclaimed performers have graced the theatre with their presence, including famous entertainers like Shirley Temple, Elvis Presley, and Frank Sinatra. Today, the Fox Theatre is as beautiful as ever, as it was completely restored in 1988.
