I have seen many concerts, plays and speakers/comics here. The redo of the original and historic Fox Theatre in downtown Riverside is wonderful. They have a summer classic movie series that I go to sometimes just to take in the Fox. Acoustics are good, visibility from floor and balcony are good (just watch the far upper corners of the balcony,... More

We've seen many concerts and shows here. The acoustics of the building make every performance special. There is not a bad seat in the house. The restored interior in all of its details makes this a very special venue. Definitely worth a visit if you have a chance.

My husband and I had the privilege of seeing two concerts at the Fox Theater. The beautifully renovated auditorium with mission style details is a true gem for Riverside. The room is small and the acoustics are good. I don't believe there is a bad seat in the house. It is located in downtown Riverside with parking conveniently located adjacent... More

Watched a movie here. They also offer concerts. The seats are the old velvet style. The architecture inside is very nice. Mission-style with a lot of wood detail. It's a throwback place. There is an adjacent bar to hang out. They also serve alcohol that you can take in the theater.

I remember the stories my Dad used to tell me about watching cartoons on the weekends here when he was young. My grandma would give him and my uncle a quarter and they’d stay all day watching movies, cartoons and eating popcorn and drinks for a quarter. This was the 1950’s. Then it looked pretty bleak for a while and... More

Very ornate on the inside. Plenty of bars for drinks, friendly staff. Very easy getting in and out. Balcony still provides good views of the stage.

We went to see Rob Thomas at this venue on July 7, 2015 and have no complaints. The acoustics are good and the view of the stage from our balcony seats was satisfactory. The decor is old fashioned but attractive. This is probably not what one would call a state of the art (rock) concert venue but it gets the... More

The Fox was completely restored a few years ago and they did a fabulous job. But, the seats are very narrow and somewhat uncomfortable.

The Fox Theater has had an interesting history. As a movie theater, it was chosen for the premiere of "Gone With the Wind." It fell on hard times for several year but has been restored to its former beauty. All the seats give a good view of the stage and the management is booking good acts. For people in Riverside...
