Feels like an old nostalgic theater, but that doesn't mean that it's run down. It has been restored and beautiful. Has great concerts!

Seating is somewhat poor upstairs. It is better than the Convention Center however. Some good entertainment but sometimes the price of ticket is very high.

My first visits to the Fox were as a child to watch Disney movies. As an adult I've attended musical concerts, comedy shows, and my daughter's dance recitals. I love attending events here. It's a lovely theater with beautiful decor. For concerts I love that it's a more intimate setting than an arena. I didn't notice any issues with acoustics.

This is a gorgeous old theater which is vintage Bakersfield. From the murals, to the old world style drapery, this is one of my favorite theaters in California. It is a perfect venue for concerts, with amazing acoustics and an intimate feel.

I just love the old feel of our Historical Theaters. I enjoy sitting in the Balconies. I've seen Sheryl Crow, Huey Lewis, Puddle of Mud, and a few others there. ;). Service is good, also has large enough Restrooms too.

In the legions of Fox Theatres located in mostly the southwest areas, this was my second visit to the city to see the same band 7 years apart. This theatre actually has been improved in that time as the lobby area appears nicer now. The seating is generally good, had no problem with acoustics myself and the design is classic... More

My first concert at the Fox was a super disappointment: The sound was so distorted I couldn't even make out my favorite song. My second concert was as a gift, and again the sound was so distorted it was all pain and no pleasure. It's an interesting place inside, but the two rock concerts I've been to weren't even music...

The Fox Theater is a place where a lot of big names go to gear up for there bigger concerts so it really is a treat. The venue is very intimate so there is a lot more interaction between the talent and the audience. The theater is old but classic, there are concession and a bar, although I would recommend... More

This place rocks. And groups like Styx and ZZ Top can rock the roof off the place. The Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas show was awesome, too. Brian can REALLY play guitar.
