The Fox Theatre

Atlanta, Georgia

Alex, featured in The Fox Theatre Magazine, Great Performances.
The Fox Theatre opened Christmas day in 1929 as an opulent 4500 seat movie palace and was in financial trouble within a year. The theatre endured a turbulent history and eventually became the site for numerous Alex Cooley productions from the Rolling Stones to Bette Midler.

When the Fox was slated for destruction, Cooley and other concerned citizens created Atlanta Landmarks, a non-profit organization to preserve, restore and operate the Atlanta Fox. After an arduous four year struggle the company finally bought The Fox in 1978.

The payoff to Atlanta was enormous. The theatre is now a world class performing arts center and an indispensible part of Atlanta's culture.

Alex and The Fox are bonded eternally, for two reasons. Atlantan's remember his efforts in saving the theatre, and "Introduction by Alex Cooley" opens "One More From the Road", the Lynyrd Skynyrd album recorded live at The Fox.
