Fox Theatre marquee getting upgraded

The Fox Theatre marquee is getting an upgrade to 21st century technology. It's no renovation -- it's a total replacement. 

This marquee, you see, has outlived its utility. So, The "Fox" is going in a box, and its replacement will knock off your socks. 

The new Fox Theatre signage is likely to be digital while retaining key elements of the old sign's retro charms.

All week, a crew will be taking down the horizontal and vertical neon and metal from the building front - but not the tower on top.

As for what happens to the old Fox signs we spied various canvas wrapped storage spots downtown, and there's even rumored to be a sort of secret location housing Tiger Stadium signage. (Next to the Ark of the Covenant in a warehouse, no doubt.)

One thing is for certain, a lot of people like things to remain classic.
