Fox Oakland Theater

This grand old movie house is being restored as part of a true renaissance on this section of Telegraph Avenue in Oakland.

(There is a great restaurant across the street, the newly opened Flora. I will write about it in a future post.)

I walked by here today at lunch and was impressed again at the sheer audacity and gaudy extravagance of this building.

The Oakland School for the Arts will be housed here starting this fall. For more info go to: http://www.foxoakland.org/.
