I have been to this venue twice now, first for a symphony, and the second for a rock concert, and I have enjoyed it both times. It is a gorgeous, historical theatre, and sticking with the Fox tradition, it has an East Indian theme that transports you to another era when you enter. The twinkling stars above your head help...

I Paid $55.00 per ticket to see this concert in the Visalia Fox Theater, which was a terrible experience at best. I have been to many concerts in the past, but this was the worst one I have ever seen, though no fault of the bands in the concert. The air conditioning was not efficient to cover all the people...

We attend the local symphony which performs at the Fox Theatre and it is an older restored movie theatre and very pleasant. They are making efforts to broaden the variety of performers coming to our area and I believe this is a really good thing. They are also bringing some independent films to the valley filling the gap left when... More

This wonderful old theater has been beautifully restored over the past few years, and the sound system completely redone. It is both intimate and elegant, comfortable enough for a family outing or a dressed-up date. We last visited for a concert, and were close enough to make eye contact with the band. The only challenge is parking...The Fox is downtown,... More

Very crowded, limited leg room, people kept getting up throughout performances to get drinks and use the restroom and had to climb over you a lot.

If your visiting Visalia its a good idea to check whats happening at the Fox Theater. They book a wide variety of concerts/shows. Often have good comedians. It was an older style movie theater. hLots of good reseraunts within walking distance. Or just windo shopping on main street can be fun.

Check their schedule to catch one of their many shows. I love the open seating area, usually best to get on of first 60 rows, but all usually good.

This was the best show we've seen in a long time. The entertainers were great and sounded pretty much like the real Beatles. The crowd really got into it. As far as the Fox, it was wonderful. Seats were comfortable with plenty of leg room. It is beautiful inside and good looking on the outside. I will be back often.

Visalia's Fox Theater is now a community performance venue. It was built for movies and stage performances in the early 20th century and provided a Moorish fantasy garden. We were there for a BB King concert. We had a great time. It seems some A list performers book into the Fox for mid week performances as they travel between the... More

One of the few remaining classic theatres built in the 1930s. It has seen the transition from vaudeville shows with its orchestra pit, through the news reels and double feature days, and today a venue for live performances. And, in this area where summers are sweltering, it is a great place to enjoy entertainment with air-conditioning. It is surrounded by... More
