The Fabulous Fox to undergo renovations
The landmark Fox Theatre in St. Louis is undergoing a $2 million renovation that will bring parts of the historic building from the 1920s into the 21st century.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the biggest improvement will be installation of a new air conditioning system. Parts of the old system date to the building's opening in 1929.
A small fire at the Fox Theatre this morning caused minor damage and no injuries, but did force the cancelation of the Sunday shows of "Jersey Boys."
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the blaze started around 5 a.m. There's no word yet on a cause.
