One of the most beautiful art deco move palaces in the world. Lights, glass, carpets, seat fabric, statues, all works of art and lovingly preserved. Come see a show. There is a movie series worth investigation. Theater tours are available.

Oakland's Art Deco jewelbox with a wonderfully opulent lobby that welcomes you to what are generally more staid attractions than you might find down the way at the Fox Oakland. This place has sparkle.
