They have been working on bringing this old theater back to it's old glory. It's a great place to go for a concert, never a bad seat, as it's fairly small compared to the new arenas.

The Fox Theater lends its historic old world vintage charm, velvet curtains and architecture to any event and has brought in great global attractions such as Bonnie Rait, Willie Nelson and Joe Bonamassa. The theater is large enough for a full ballet or a single musician. The hall itself gives you a more intimate experience while not losing any of... More

This one of a kind theater was built in the late 1920's and opened on or about December 1930. It has lasted and continues to have first class entertainment.

One of the last big screen theaters left in California for file viewing. Also has a variety of entertainment including concerts, plays, etc. Great "old time" movies theater experience. Even has the twinkling stars in the ceiling.

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.
