One of the five spectacular movie palaces in the country that was built by film pioneer William Fox in the 1920s is the Fox Theatre in Detroit, Michigan. This massive movie house is composed of more than five thousand seats and is the largest of all the surviving structures of the sort built in its era.

Although, it has already been surpassed by later buildings, the Fox Theatre is still a very notable building in the state and country altogether. For one, it is the very first movie theatre that was designed with a built-in equipment for talking films in the world. Using its patented technology known as the ?Movietone?, it was able to show sound films to its patrons as soon as it opened.

The Fox Theatre is a National Historic Landmark. It still serves as a premiere movie palace in the city.
