If you are so inclined, here is a wee little bit about the glorious Fox Theater from here::
The Oakland Fox Theater, a 2,800 seat movie theater originally opened its doors on October 27, 1928 in downtown Oakland, California.  The complexity of the Fox’s design portrayed a very lavish lifestyle. Reflecting luxury and class by its beautiful structure. After thirty years of delivering to the public, the Fox’s success was disrupted by the popularity of television that hurt downtown theaters across the nation. Attendance significantly dropped in the 1960s and the Oakland Fox officially closed its doors in 1966. After being closed for twelve years, the Fox avoided demolition when it became officially recognized as an Oakland City Landmark.  February 2009 marked the beginning of a new era for the Fox. After being neglected for forty years, the once glamorous theater made its comeback.

Do you have a favorite venue to see shows in your town?  I'd love to hear about it.
