“Night Fever, Night Fever!”
The Fox Theatre, built in 1927, by architect Howard Crane
“The final departure from his earlier designs were his twin Siamese Byzantine masterpieces built in St. Louis and Detroit for William Fox. When finished in 1929, reporters noted that the new Fox theatres were “awe-inspiring, fashioned after…old India, bewildering in their richness and dazzling in their appointments…striking a note that reverberated around the architectural and theatrical worlds.”
This is one of my many works of art hanging in “Cafe Ventana” near St. Louis University:
3919 West Pine Blvd, STL, 63108. Near Forest Park Parkway, beside the West part of SLU.
