As a part of the Fox Theatre’s ongoing commitment to Georgia’s historic theaters, the Fox Theatre Institute (FTI) awarded a $50,000 check to 7 Stages Theatre in Little Five Points this week.

7 Stages Theatre has been bringing local and international emerging artwork of social, political, and spiritual importance to Atlanta audiences since 1979. The theatre will use the FTI Preservation Grant award to restore the marquee and support necessary HVAC and system repairs.
