Interior (Post#10) : Atlanta Fox Theatre
Atlanta Fox Theatre is already part of history and its significance is being recognize not only in the city but in the whole country. The theatre has been planned for demolition before and due to circumstances it has been saved. Right now the 1920’s former movie palace is now self-sustaining as it generates income that can maintain its structure. The building design both exterior and interior shows its Moorish style. When I entered the theatre from entrance to balcony it significantly show the Middle Eastern and Egyptian style from it doors, windows, ceilings, walls and flooring. Even the lighting used and decorations significantly show its Arabic concept. And when I learned that it was originally planned and designed as new headquarters of Shriners in Atlanta (a national fraternal organization that is a subgroup of the Masons, is the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic), I understand why the theatre has the Moorish concept. But because of the cost it needed, the member of Shriners lease the building to movie tycoon William Fox and had a deal about having its 5000 seats.
