Historic architecture AND beautiful!

It has been restored beautifully, I'm in awe when I walk in the doors, I don't even remember it being that gorgeous when I was a child!

Visited Fox Theatre for Jerry Seinfield show, of course he was fantastic, but the theatre was unbelievable. We stood in the lobby just in awe of the decor and everything there. Excellent seating and sound and couldn't get over the decorating. Just wonderful. We stayed right in downtown at the Hilton Garden Inn and walked to the theatre. We were... More

We were fortunate to attend a performance of the Broadway Touring Company production of "Memphis" here. Yes, the show was great, but . . . this theater is something that needs to be experienced. Thank heavens there are folks with sufficient means to preserve this kind of architectural art. It is a masterpiece. This is a perfect example of a... More

The Fox is extravagant. Going to the Fox Theater is an event, regardless of the show you're seeing. Prepare to be in awe at the ornateness and attention-to-detail that went into this theater's construction

We attended a concert of a rock legend this month and the theater ended up being the star attraction. The Fox is a masterpiece that has been restored to its past beauty. It has to be seen to be appreciated. The staff were fabulous and professional and should be proud to be a part of this place. The Fox is... More

This was about my third time at the Fox. Always walking in, I am amazed at the old-fashioned beauty and elegance. Everyone was efficient and friendly, but I must mention the ushers. Several were older gentlemen that truly went out of their way to make you feel welcome and special. They were extremely helpful helping some older patrons who had... More
