IC Visits the Bank of America and the Fabulous Fox

Recommended Posts

As many of you may know, I went to the Fox Theater yesterday to see the Radion City Rockettes and Christmas Spectacular. Afterwards, I went to Atlantic Station. These are some pics of the Fox and the Bank of America Plaza building.

Great Pictures as usual IC! :thumbsup:

Fox Theater looks really cool. How old is it?

The "looking up" shots are just awesome, everything is perfectly centered.

Wow, you have a life, my turn!

Nah, I'm just joking. I have a life. Really I do.

Those pictures are great, what kind of camera do you use. It doesn't exactly look like a digital camera took those photos.

NCB, the Fox was built as a Yaarab Temple Shrine (you know, Shriners?) in the late 1920's. During the Depression, the Shriners started showing films to make some money for the upkeep of the building. This was done trough a deal with movie mogul William Fox. He was, at the time, building movie palaces throughout the nation in places like St. louis and Detroit. Soon, the Shriners left and it became the theater it is today. It isn't so much a movie theater anymore as much as it is drama theater. It was saved from the wrecking ball in the 1970's by Atlanta Landmarks, Inc. It is now a National Historic Landmark. It is the second largest theater by area in the USA.

I don't have a camera myself, but I do use my parents' camera on these trips. It is a Canon something (can't remember). It uses film, my personal picture preference (though I am looking around for a digital one).

The Canon costed about $250 when they bought it a few years ago.

Well the fox has history to it. I didn't know any of these things. Especially that it is the 2nd largest in the USA. What is the first largest?

I'm not quite sure which one is the largest, but it's one in New York City on Broadway. I'll look into it.
