Another Reason Why the Bay Area Rocks: Fox Theater

December 3, 2008


Just got an email from Another Planet Entertainment, looks like the Fox Theater in Oakland is set to finally open in February! And lemme tell you, it looks nice.

With the renovation costing $75 million, the theater’s site describes the new facility as featuring a “wrap around building that will be the permanent home for the Oakland School for the Arts, a tuition-free charter school dedicated to artistic and academic excellence. By night, the theater will offer premier ground floor bars and restaurants that open out to a courtyard of trees, benches, and newly widened sidewalks.”

Along with these superb amenities it’s pretty much guaranteed to host some awesome events, considering that one of the main funding sources is the aforementioned Another Planet, who are responsible for such great events as the Outside Lands and Treasure Island Music Festivals.

Excited? First event announcements coming January 5th!! Don’t worry, it’s already on the calendar…
