Needless to say, there’s been many sightings and intriguing stories that’ve come to the surface, all conspiring that the Fox Theatre isn’t what it seems to be.

During the tour, you’re able to access parts of the theatre that are usually off-limits to the average theatregoer. Learn about the old organist whose ashes were scattered in the theatre. It’s said that he haunts the space – which is surprisingly more sinister when not seeing a show. With the grand and camp interiors, the glamour of showbiz, and even the intention of the building. The theater was originally planned as part of a large Shrine Temple as evidenced by its Moorish design.
