Fox Theatre Reopens in July with The Wizard of Oz, King Crimson, and The Princess Bride followed by 70 confirmed shows in 2021.
The Fox Theatre is proud to announce its official public reopening this summer with three socially distanced, reduced capacity events in July, starting with Fox fan-favorite The Wizard of Oz on Sunday, July 25, prog-rock band King Crimson on Tuesday, July 27, and cult classic The Princess Bride on July 31. To purchase general tickets or new all-inclusive Club Level seats in the Loge of the Theatre with access to the Marquee Club presented by Lexus*, visit foxtheatre.org or call 855-285-8499. For all three events in July, masks will be recommended but not required for all guests and mandatory for all staff. Mask requirements for other events will vary and can be found by visiting the Fox Theatre’s COVID-19 updates page here: https://www.foxtheatre.org/events/covid-19-updates.
As in previous Coca-Cola Summer Film Festivals, the Fox Theatre will showcase The Wizard of Oz and The Princess Bride on its impressive 26-by-56-foot screen. Patrons will enjoy movies under the Fox Theatre’s distinctive blue sky with twinkling stars and fluffy clouds. Guests arriving early to the films will have the opportunity to attend a magical pre-show experience, including a sing-along accompanied by the world-renowned “Mighty Mo” organ performing live for the first time since its 2019 restoration. Get ready to “SAY CHEESE!” as a photographer on stage will be taking a commemorative photo of the audiences for both films that will be available for download. Photo-ops with onsite look-alike characters Dorothy, Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion will take place before The Wizard of Oz, so get in early to see who you can find! Movie prices are $15 for general tickets and $35 for Club Level.
After July, the Fox will be at 100% capacity, starting with the return of Hamilton for 39 shows August 22 – September 26. To usher in the return of Broadway properly, the Fox Theatre will be lighting up its historic Arcade entrance with a special BROADWAY IS BACK-themed digital experience for the opening week only. To be the first to know about upcoming pre-sale and on-sale information for Hamilton, join the Fox Theatre’s e-club at foxtheatre.org/eclub.
