St. Louis Fox Upgrades

The Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis has commenced a $2 million, seven-week restoration project.

A major upgrade to the building, which opened in 1929, will be the installation of a new, energy-efficient air conditioning system. Other improvements include a new façade and lighting.

Repairs will also be made to the lobby ceiling that was damaged by a fire in the theatre’s mechanical room May 15.

Concerts resume Aug. 24 with Steely Dan followed by Return To Forever and Zappa Plays Zappa, Santana and Michael Franti, “Yo Gabba Gabba,” Straight No Chaser and Jim Gaffigan.
