(ATLANTA, Ga.) Guided tours at the Fox Theatre is back in time for the spring and summer weather.

In addition to pausing shows and productions, guided tours were also put on hold at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the Fox is welcoming visitors with the launch of Self-Guided Exterior Tours.

Tours allow participants to explore the building’s exterior and architectural excellence at their own pace.

These tours include the exterior of the building and give you an opportunity to explore the architectural landmark at your own pace. There are eleven landmarks total beginning with the Stage Door on Ponce de Leon Avenue and ends on the North façade near the original cornerstone of the Fox.

The tour highlights both historical points and architectural details provided by the Fox Theatre’s own archives collection and the 2017 Preservation Plan prepared by New South Associates and architectural firm, Lord Aeck Sargent.

“The Fox Theatre Institute is eager to welcome all that appreciate the Fox Theatre and our unique and locally treasured architecture. The tour is self-paced and includes some wonderful and rarely seen photos of the exterior of the Fox.” Leigh Burns, Director of the Fox Theatre Institute said in a statement.

The cost of the tour is $10 and includes a download of a virtual guide. Tours are available daily from Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Ticket sales from the tour will go towards restoring the Fox. There is no official start date, but once proper safety guidelines are implemented and shows return to the stage this year, tours will begin.
