The Fox Theater:

The Fox is one of the most famous theaters in Atlanta. Located on Peachtree in Midtown, this fan-favorite venue was originally planned as part of a large Shrine Temple, and showcases this with its Moorish design. Originally part of the Fox Theaters chain across the country, The Fox began as a movie theater and became popular as a dance hall. Saved from demolition in 1976, The Fox was named a National Historic Landmark. Today, The Fox hosts concerts, Broadway tours, summer film series, and artistic events such as the Atlanta Ballet. Acts range from comedians like Jerry Seinfeld to pop stars like Cher. It’s an elegant place to enjoy a show. Needless to say, we’re a fan of The Fox, and ParkMobile’s got lots of lots available nearby for your next show.

Buckhead Theater:

Buckhead Theater is a popular concert venue located in Buckhead, Atlanta. Walking distance from Buckhead Village District, the venue is perfect for a dinner-and-a-show kind of night out. The theater opened in 1930, features a Spanish baroque style architecture, and was originally planned to be a second-run movie theater, before converting to first-run in 1961. After a few different managements, Buckhead Theater closed in 2008 for renovations and only recently reopened in 2010. Now, the theater hosts concerts and has hosted shows such as Dua Lipa, Mumford & Sons, Phish, LANY, Ray Charles, and Talking Heads to name a few.
