A truly iconic theater, and a wonderful place to catch a show. The marque and glitzy interior take you back to a time when all entertainment was live, and in ornate venues such as this.

This venue is so comfortable and there is not a bad seat in the house. Acoustics are very good and the ambiance is phenomenal.

As a child I went there on Sundays with my folks to see all the classic movies. As a young adult I was fortunate to see many special shows there; now as an older adult, have enjoyed many plays. The atmosphere is so glorious--beautiful. So happy they saved the Fox. Still miss Stan Kann and his organ though. My husband... More

The Fabulous Fox Theater is an amazing place. If you are in St. Louis, take the guided behind the scenes tour, you will not regret. It was stepping back to days of the silent movies and moving to the current times. The organist was on hand to play this wonderful instrument. Enough time was allowed to meander backstage and see...

The history. The Fox is old but also so well taken care of. I don't think I have ever seen someone come into the main doors and not have their jaw drop at the sight. There is so much history all around and even in the bathrooms.

The Fox is a great place to see a concert, play, comedian...just about anything. The main lobby always sends chills down my spine as I enter because it's so impressive. It really is a treasure for the city of STL.
