First, there is the appalling parking situation. Arriving 30 minutes before curtain, we find the parking line is moving at a snails pace. Why? Because there is only one sullen, slow, unwelcoming, "I'm too busy gabbing with my co-worker to do my job effectively", parking attendant taking the $15 dollars one pays to have the privilege to park in this...

I visited the Fox Theater to see the Macklemore + Ryan Lewis concert and was blown away by the beauty in this theater. The ceiling was breathtaking and i would love to come back and see another production at this location!

Took our students to the Fox Theater and the whole group had a great time. The inside of the Fox is timeless. The inner decor is well maintained and anywhere you sit within the Fox is a great seat. We sat I. The second row from the front and the characters came down and danced with the kids. The acoustics... More

We were not fortunate enough to be able to attend a performance at The Fox, but the view of its amazing lighted sign, towering over downtown, was impressive. Our Detroit Expert says it is as impressive inside as out.

I am still overwhelmed when I remember that breathtaking place....with an air-condition-system designed in the twenties and still running and in use. The same goes for the central vacuuming system. ...with breathtaking architecture, lights and ornaments. And the sound of the mighty Wurlitzer creates goose pimples on your skin. The Fox Theatre gives you more than a glimpse of the... More

Still the same beautiful place after all of these years, the inside I exquisitely designed. The parking is convenient and you do feel safe.

This is a great place to watch a show. It is gorgeous inside. The productions are fabulous. Great seats and sound. This theatre is right downtown. Across the street from Comerica Park and Ford Field.
