ATLANTA – The Fox Theatre's Marquee Club presented by Lexus grand opening was held on May 17, 2018. The event included a ceremonial ribbon-cutting for inaugural members. The $10 million expansion is the largest one-time revitalization effort of the Fox Theatre since its 1929 grand opening. The Marquee Club footprint includes the northwest corner of the building that was previously leased retail space.

The Marquee Club features 10,000 square feet of premium event space, including enhanced food and beverage service within the club’s five stationary bars, with passed and displayed hors d’oeuvres located throughout. Members will enjoy the Club’s multi-level interior and climate-controlled rooftop terrace overlooking Atlanta’s famed Peachtree Street, offering public access to the Fox Theatre’s roof for the first time in nearly 50 years.

“This is a momentous day for the Fox Theatre, as we are thrilled to unveil the Marquee Club for the very first time,” said Allan C. Vella, President and CEO of Fox Theatre, Inc. “With the assistance of dedicated partners, such as Lexus and Regions Bank, we are able to introduce the Marquee Club to our patrons, who have long asked for the Fox Theatre to offer more amenities, more food and beverage offerings and a heightened ‘Fox Theatre experience.’ This is our largest revitalization effort to date and a huge undertaking for our staff, as we took great care to select a team of historic preservation experts, luxury designers and artisans to ensure the Marquee Club will stand as an equal to the Fox Theatre for decades and generations to come.”

Individual, Corporate or Broadway Across America membership tiers offer year-round access to the Marquee Club, in association with ticketed events at the Fox Theatre. A recent addition, members also received a number of club access passes for ticketed guests, as well as an allowance for membership transfers. Fox Theatre ticketed guests may purchase Marquee Club access passes for select events. Marquee Club access passes are limited and may be purchased on a first come, first served basis on designated shows via the Fox Theatre website.

“We believe we have created an example for how historic venues may still stay competitive within the ever-changing landscape of entertainment,” said Adina Erwin, Vice President and COO of Fox Theatre, Inc. “For the Marquee Club, we had to think ‘outside the box’ to create a premium VIP experience within the ‘box’ of historic preservation. We thank our partners, our members and our patrons for their patience, as we are eager to open our doors in just a few weeks.”

Guests may enter the club before and after events, as well as during intermission. Additional amenities will include priority pre-sale ticketing notifications, private restrooms, dedicated lobby elevator, concierge guest services and for select memberships, self-parking access to an adjacent lot. At intermission, guests will have access to pre-ordered drinks, dessert and coffee.
