When we are not roofing Fox Theatre, we like to catch a comedy show or our favorite musician when they come to Detroit. Of course, roofing Fox Theatre is our main priority, but there’s also a lot to love other than working all day. The Fox Theatre is a place for performing arts. It is at 2211 Woodward Avenue in Downtown Detroit, Michigan, near the Grand Circus Park Historic District. When it opened in 1928, it was the biggest theater in the city with more than 5,000 seats. That’s just one of the reasons Detroit Roofers is proud to have a reputation for excelling at roofing Fox Theatre. It was the flagship theater for the Fox Theatres chain. It was built by C. Howard Crane, a theater architect, and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
Because of the way it was built, it was named a National Historic Landmark in 1989. Foxtown is the name for the area around the Fox. From the Fox Theatre and Grand Circus Park Historic District, the city’s major performance centers and theaters spread out along Woodward Avenue toward the Fisher Theatre in the city’s New Center.
The Fox can hold 5,048 people (5,174 seats if removable seats placed in the raised orchestra pit are included). It is the biggest movie palace from the 1920s that is still standing, and it is also the biggest of the original Fox Theatres. In 1988, the Fox was fully fixed up. The offices of Olympia Entertainment and Little Caesars are in the building next door.
William Fox, who was one of the first people to make movies, built five beautiful Fox Theaters in the late 1920s. The interior of the Fox, which was designed by architect C. Howard Crane, is a mix of Burmese, Chinese, Indian, and Persian designs. The Main Floor, which is above the orchestra pit, the Mezzanine, and the Gallery are the three levels of seating (balcony).
The Fox opened in 1928 and was Detroit’s best place to see a movie for many years. Unlike many nearby theaters, it was always open until the 1980s, when it was closed for repairs. But by the 1960s, the place was showing its age, and important repairs were put off. By the 1970s, people could no longer sit in the mezzanine or on the balcony.
In 1984, Chuck Forbes, who owned the State and Gem theaters, came up with a plan to fix up the theaters. These plans were never fully put into action, but in 1988 the theater was bought by Mike and Marian Ilitch, who spent $12 million to fix it up. The Fox Theater Office Building is where their company, Ilitch Holdings, Inc., has its main office. Some people call the downtown area near Grand Circus Park that includes the Fox Theatre “Foxtown,” after the theater. Roofing Fox Theatre is a pleasurable experience for us!
