The Fox Theatre in Midtown will transform into a cauldron of spookiness when it opens its doors for the seventh annual Fox Theatre Ghost Tours this Halloween season.

Tours will be available for three days only: Oct. 9, 15 and 17. They start at 6 p.m., with the last tour beginning at 8:45 p.m. Tours begin every 15 minutes and take about 60 minutes.

Brave guests will walk through the historic venue to learn about the Fox’s 90 years of ghostly sightings and unexplained events. Tour attendees will hear stories from Mr. and Mrs. Fox, who will be joined by other characters from the theater’s past, as they share details of its haunted history.

Spooks and scares will be around every shadowy corner as guides recount supernatural tales collected from theater staff and contractors over the years. Other spooky stops include the hospital room, power room and subbasement areas, including the stage freight elevator.

Over the years, many of the staff and more than a few patrons have claimed to have felt a sudden blast of cold air, seen a shadowy figure float along the walls or heard the slow creaking of a door shutting close without cause. … Will you?

The ghost tours are not recommended for children under 10; kids under 6 are not permitted.
