Our bold vision for the Fox Theater is now a reality.
After closing its doors in 1966, the Fox Theater re-opened in February of 2009. The $75mm multi-use renovation project features a state-of-the-art theater with flexible capacity from 1,800 to 2,800. The multiple seating configurations include general admission, cabaret style seating, and reserved seating. The theater itself now serves as the flagship live music venue for Another Planet Entertainment.
Since it's grand re-opening in 2009, the Fox Theater hosts over 100 shows annually. The venue has played host to a wide range of emerging
and world-renowned artists such as The Black Keys, Florence & The Machine, Animal Collective, Rodrigo y Gabriela, My Morning Jacket, The
Chemical Brothers, Nas & Damian Marley, Vampire Weekend and Cafe Tacuba. World-renowned artists that have also performed on the Fox Theater
stage include Green Day, Neil Young, Kylie Minogue, Yoko Ono, The Allman Brothers, Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, The Pixies and Paul Simon.
Fox Theater's wrap around building is the permanent home for the Oakland School for the Arts, a tuition-free charter school dedicated to artistic and academic excellence. The Fox Theater is located in the absolute demographic center of the Bay Area (population 7.5 million). The Fox is now the centerpiece of the revitalized Uptown District section of Oakland that features fine dining, a thriving nightlife, and 2,000 new residential development units. The Fox Theater is located within a half block of BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) and only a 12-minute train ride from San Francisco and a 9-minute train ride from Berkeley.
Thanks to the City of Oakland, former Mayor of Oakland/current Governor of California Jerry Brown, California Capital Group, Phil Tagami and the Friends of the Fox for converting a theater in disrepair in 1996 into a world class theater today in 2009. The Fox Theater would not have had a second life without their dreams and expertise.
