Everyone who's ever been to Atlanta's Fox Theatre knows there is something magical about the place between the magnificent star-studded ceiling, the fanciful Egyptian/Islamic palace decor and the place's storied history.

But did you know there is a 1920s-era hospital room just off the downstairs women's bathroom? Or that the original 1920s technology is still in place backstage? Or that Elvis once used one of the theater's posh dressing rooms?

This month, the Fox is opening up the parts of the theater that only the lucky few get to see and letting the public get a glimpse of all of the historic theater's secrets with behind-the-scenes tours.

Along with the (fairly creepy) hospital room, visitors can pause in the Star Dressing Room, which Prince used during his final concert in Atlanta before his death, peek into rehearsal spaces and take a bow on the stage.

The theater, which is on the National Historic Register, also serves as a living museum of 1920s-era technology.

The 90-minute tours are scheduled for August 21, 24 and 26, and start every 30 minutes from 6-9p. Tickets cost $45.
