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.

This is an old theater that has been restored. They have many shows there from comedians to music concerts. The seats are comfortable and there is plenty of leg room. It also has a balconey and the restrooms are upstairs too. Its a great place

I've been here for a performance. It's a classic old fox theater. Acoustics are good. Parking is a bit of a concern.

ince I was both born and raised in Bakersfield, I can still remember going to the "Fox" just to see movies as a child. Over the years, they have continued to both refurbish and maintain this theatre's "beauty". I have done the "father/daughter" dance performance at this same theatre over the past few years and both seen the continued overall... More
