ATLANTA – If the walls inside the Fox Theatre could talk, you'd probably find stories of show business past.
11Alive got an exclusive tour of their ghost tours, and there’s a motley crew of historical spirits and spectacles as we discovered the haunted halls.
Most notably, guests may experience a chill as they enter the boiler room, which is the current residence of the Fox’s most famous ghost – Roosevelt. Roosevelt maintained the Fox Theaters' boiler room until his passing in 1945. Since then, it is rumored that he still “works” in the boiler room – stoking the fire and cleaning the burners to keep the Fox Theatre warm throughout the winter.
If you disturb him while he works, he may slam doors, hit things and turn off lights to shock his unruly guests. Other spooky stops include the hospital room, power room and sub-basement areas, including the stage freight elevator.
If you would like to see the fun on your own, you can check out all of the happening this month.
