The Fox Theater is an example of the theatrical, architectural details that flourished after the industrial revolution and the wide use of cast iron as a building material. The ornate elements of the ticket booth were originally carved and sculpted into master patterns then cast in iron with a painted finish. Allen Architectural Metals Inc. re-created these cast elements in aluminum keeping their original, ornate designs while requiring less maintenance of the booth for the owners. The fabricated booth has a gilded gold finish and custom designed, frosted glass windows as specified by the architect. The completed booth sits like a jewel box welcoming patrons into this historical theater.
