Fox Theatre Detroit
The Fox Theatre in Detroit was the first Fox theater ever. It was built by William Fox in the late 20's and was the first movie theater to have live sound. The Theatre is Detroit's top venue for Broadway shows.
In 1989 the theatre was deemed a National Historic Landwmark after a $11 million refurbishment by new owner Mike Ilitch.
The Detroit Fox was the first movie theater in the world to be constructed with built-in equipment for sound films. The Fox Film Corporation's patented sound-on-film system "Movietone" enabled the theater to present sound films from the time of its opening
