The Fox Theatre is an historic landmark in Atlanta, built in the late 1920s as a Yaarab Temple Shrine Mosque. It hosts musicals, shows, concerts and the Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival.
The closest MARTA station is the North Avenue Station on the red/gold rail line, and with the theatre located next to the station, it is one of the easiest destinations to get to on MARTA. After exiting the train, go to the north end of the platform, following the signs “To Fox Theatre”. You’ll briefly walk through the AT & T building where are there are a few shops in an indoor mall. Keep moving straight ahead and there will be a street exit onto 3rd Street. Turn right on 3rd, then turn right on Peachtree Street, the next intersection.
If you accidentally stumble out of the station onto North Avenue, turn left on North Avenue, then left onto Peachtree Street to get to the Fox. The timing isn’t that much different, but you will stay underground longer by going via the AT & T building, which is nice if it is raining, cold or late at night when spending less time on the street is a better option.
