Encore Michigan

Fox Theatre

Built in 1928 by 20th Century Fox founder William Fox and his wife Eve Leo Fox, the Fox Theatre was purchased in 1986 by Michael and Marion Ilitch. After an 18-month restoration, the Fox Theatre reopened on Nov. 19, 1988. Since then, guests have been awed by its beauty and architectural design.

Alive with activity each year, the Fox Theatre has hosted the world’s greatest performers for over 75 years and holds its ground as one of the top-grossing theaters of its size in the nation. The legendary acts to have graced the Fox stage include, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Jerry Seinfeld, Paul Simon, Van Morrison, Idina Menzel, “Miss Saigon,” “Oliver,” “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas” and the “Radio City Christmas Spectacular!”

Private group tours are available, which will give guests a unique behind-the-scenes look at the magnificently restored Fox Theatre. Fox tours are available by appointment only, for groups of 15 or more. Tours are offered Monday through Friday on non-event days; tickets are $6 per person. Complimentary motor coach parking is available.
