The Tradition of the Fox Theater's Ghost Light and Haunting.

Whether due to superstition or as a safety measure, many theatres have what is called a “ghost light” (the Fox Theatre has two). The ghost light is usually turned on when the theatre is dark or empty. It’s unclear how the tradition of a ghost light began, but some believe that the light’s purpose is to appease the theatre’s resident ghosts so that they do not interfere with the productions. Also, the ghost light is a safety measure to help workers navigate the theater that otherwise would be completely dark. There are rumors that the Fox Theater is haunted by two ghosts. One is a woman dressed in a white blouse, and the other is a gentleman wearing a suit with slick black hair and a distinctive mustache. Both have been seen strolling through the theatre late at night.
