The Fox theater was restored to it's former glory with Historical accuracy with hand-painted beams and tiles to match the existing. The seats were comfortable and they were smart to put air conditioning in the floor so you feel it.

We had no intention on going to the theater, but as we were walking around going to get dinner a couple walked up to us and gave us their tickets to see Stephen Stills. It is a beautiful theater and the concert was great.

The Fox Performing Arts Center is a wonderful intimate setting for shows. Every seat has a great view of the stage and parking is a breeze. It's so much easier to park near and enter it. Excellent venue now that it has been refurbished.

Nice old theatre, kept the way it was back in the day. It is really neat the way it looks like you've stepped back in time. Enjoyed the show....but the staff could be more friendly though.

Not a bad seat in the house! We have seen several shows and concerts here and enjoyed everyone of them. NO long drive to LA and lots of nice places to eat in the area.

I saw a concert there. Unfortunately the room wasn't completely lit in a way that let us enjoy the renovated ceilings and so forth, but we could tell that it was really nice. The seats were comfortable and we had plenty of leg room. The acoustics were good too, although it was a really loud show so not sure how... More

Excellent place to see a show. Big enough for a good crowd but still small enough for an intimate feel.

Nice venue, lots of character and not too big so you felt part of the gig (Jason Mraz). More bar staff would've been good, the queues were too long.

Love what they did w/ the refurbishing! It looks original! Some good shows being offered. I like that you can buy tickets at the box office instead of having to pay fees to a ticket service.

This theater is over-the-top---an incredible restoration for astounding property--returning it to the glory days of its origin only with a modernized stage and sound system equipped for a full Broadway show. Just watched this incredible show which made me relive memories from the 70's in vivid detail. From London's West End to Riverside...just a block from the Mission Inn Hotel!... More
