The elaborate decor was called Siamese-Byzantine and provided a feast for the eyes with magnificent staircases, jewel-encrusted columns, cloisonné elephants and walls and ceilings adorned with exotic animals. One of its crowning features is a 12-foot diameter, 5,280-pound chandelier. This magnificent restored movie palace has become the center of entertainment for the St. Louis region since its restoration and grand reopening in 1982. The meticulous restoration of the Fox was recognized by The National Trust of Historical Preservation with a 1983 National Trust Honor Award. With programming that ranges from Broadway shows to top concert acts, comedy stars and family productions, the Fox has something for everyone!
