Fox Associates, L.L.C., was formed in 1981 to purchase, renovate and operate the 4,500-seat Fox Theatre in St. Louis, Missouri.
The Fox Theatre opened in 1929 as one of the crown jewels
in William Fox's motion picture empire. With a seating capacity of 5,060,
the Fox was second in size only to New York's Roxy Theatre. It was also
one of the first theaters in the country equipped for "talking" films.
The elaborate decor was called "Siamese-Byzantine" and provided a feast
for the eyes with magnificent staircases, jewel-encrusted columns, cloisonne elephants
and walls and ceilings adorned with exotic animals.
This magnificently restored movie palace has become the center of entertainment
for the St. Louis metropolitan area. Since its restoration and grand re-opening
in 1982, more than ten million people have attended the Fox Theatre for spectacular
concerts and productions.
Since its reopening, the Fox Theatre has consistently ranked as one of the top
five grossing theaters in the nation. This is exemplified by its record-setting
engagement of "Phantom of the Opera," which grossed over $8.6 million in just
a five-and-a-half week run.
