Designed by C. Howard Crane and built in 1928, the Detroit Fox Theatre is the culmination of flamboyant movie palace architectural design. Crane, who had designed over 250 theatres by 1928, considered the Fox his best effort. In its size, ornate decoration and mechanical systems, it was the premier example of what a movie palace could be. A 1928 Detroit Free Press article stated, “Detroit’s Fox Theatre has the largest clear span balcony in the world. The stage proper is larger than the Roxy Theater in New York and has the largest and finest projection room and equipment of any theatre in the world.” Today, the Fox holds the distinction of being the largest continually operating theatre in the country.
