Statement of Significance (as of designation - June 29, 1989):
The "motion picture" architectural style reached its peak in Detroit in 1928 with Howard Crane's Fox Theater, the culmination of a flamboyant, inventive era. The interior is an eclectic collection of Far East modes, including Burmese, Indian, Chinese, Persian, and Hindu motifs.

The landmark is in good condition.

There have been no known changes since the last reporting period.
