William Fox, founder of film Production Company, 20th Century Fox, began production on this St. Louis in 1927. Designed by leading movie palace architects of the day, Howard Crane, the theater was designed in an elegant “Siamese Byzantine” style that would showcase the Ritz and glamour of the city. The architectural masterpiece officially opened in 1929, and became a spectacular venue for movie premiers, stage attractions and special events.
After closing its doors for a brief period in the late 1970’s, the theater was restored in 1981 to its original glory, earning a 1983 National Trust Honor Award. Today, the theater is home to exciting concerts, shows and special events.
