2004 Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival. The time-honored tradition of the summer film festival at the Fox Theatre is an experience not to be missed! Now recognized as the Coca-Cola Film Festival, this is truly the best way to see the Fox as seen by those who came on opening day in 1929. While the orchestra and dancers are long gone, audiences can still experience the magic of the Fox's "Mighty Mo" organ and the tradition of the sing-a-long that takes place before each film. Each Film Festival features a combination of current and classic films, truly something for every movie-goer. ORGAN MUSIC/RADIO PERSONALITIES/SING-A-LONG begin about 40 minutes prior to film's scheduled start time.

BOX OFFICE AND THEATRE DOORS for the COCA-COLA FILM FESTIVAL open 1 hour and 15 minutes prior to the film's scheduled start time. Individual tickets are available for purchase at that time FOR CASH ONLY. If you want to order a series book of tickets or reserved seating for Gone With The Wind please contact Tickemaster. Series booklets are available for $60.00 and include 12 movie tickets that can be used for any of the film's except those with reserved seating.
