The Fox Theatre is a fully restored 1929 "Movie Palace" and today is a multi-purpose facility housing Broadway shows, ballet, symphonies, concerts, movies, and private and corporate events.
The Fox Theatre is dedicated to providing persons with special needs a comfortable and enjoyable theatre experience. In fact, we have established several programs which are described herein to help patrons with special needs enjoy all the events presented in the Fox Theatre.
- Ambassador Program
The Fox also has in place an Ambassador Program that is intended to provide assistance to our patrons with special needs, their families, and friends at performances. Our 'Top Hat' will greet you at the curb, and you may check in with our 'Concierge Desk' inside the arcade (far right as you approach the main doors to the theater), who will notify the Floor Captains of your arrival. An Ambassador Host will assist you to your seat location and inform you of convenient facilities to meet your needs.
If you have any questions about any of these services, please call House Manager Ken Butler at 404-881-2119
or e-mail Ken.

Tickets may be purchased in person at the Ticket Office, or at any FoxTheatre.org outlet.

The Fox Theatre Ticket Office is open for advance ticket sales Monday-Friday at 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday at 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and is closed on Sunday.

Tickets for that night's performance are sold until 30 minutes after curtain. When ordering tickets by phone, please call a Fox Theatre Ticket Office Associate at 404-882-2016, or online at FoxTheatre.org and specify wheelchair, sight or hearing requirements.
Wheelchair patrons are entitled to purchase one companion seat at the same price as the wheelchair location. Any additional seats, which a wheelchair patron wishes to purchase, must be purchased at the same price attributable to seats in the immediate vicinity.
Tickets for seating at locations in Row V seats 101 and 114, AA51, AA52, AA1, AA2, S101, S114, OO1, OO2, and in the pit are sold at the full price attributable to seats in the immediate vicinity. The purchaser of these seats may also purchase up to three additional seats at full price so four people may sit together.
Tickets for seats in the orchestra center are sold on the following basis: When tickets for all the seats on the orchestra level are the same price, each of the wheelchair locations and companion seats in this area will be priced at the next lowest ticket price for the performance. When tickets for the seats on the orchestra level are priced at two different price levels, the wheelchair locations and companion seats in this area will be priced at the lower of the two price levels. The wheelchair locations in this area will be reserved exclusively for wheelchair patrons and their companions until all other seats at the same price are sold for the performance.
Tickets for seating at orchestra right or left in the designated areas of rows S, U, W, and Y are sold at the lowest price for the event in question. For example, if the show is a Broadway show and the regular ticket prices are $15.00, $20.00, and $25.00, the accessible tickets are to be sold for $15.00. The individual who purchases seats in these locations may also purchase one additional seat at the reduced price and up to two more adjacent seats at full price.
