Fox Theater

Little Ceasars Headquarters
Edward D. Francis, FAIA, served as the Principal in Charge for the renovation and restoration work at the fabulous Fox Theater in Detroit, Michigan. Designed by C. Howard Crane in 1928, it houses a 5,000 seat theatre featuring a fantasia of Arabic, Indian, Oriental and Moorish influenced architecture.   The theatre, with the longest freestanding balcony in the world at the time, was restored to its original appearance.

Project completed under Kessler Associates.
