The Fox Theater in Uptown Oakland is the city’s hub for the theatrical arts. Having closed its doors over 40 years ago after it fell decrepit, the Fox was able to obtain funding needed to reopen in 2009. The colossal project of renovating this art house to its former glory had a price tag of over $75 million. This new and improved Fox can be configured in a host of different floor arrangements depending on the event. This enables the theater to accommodate everything from plays to concerts, to orchestral performances. In addition to its function as a venue for live performances, it also features an up class, fine-dining restaurant, and an arts school.
