Over the years, many started referring to the Cox Capitol Theater in downtown Macon as simply "The Cox."

After more than a decade, the naming rights of the historic theater on Second Street now belongs to Eatonton-based Hargray Communications.

The new name for the theater is the Hargray Capitol Theatre.

The announcement was made Friday by Macon's Moonhanger Group, which operates the theater and several restaurants in the area.
