This is a terrific venue for seeing the symphony. This is a fully restored old school Fox theater that is beautiful to look at. I am proud to have it in our community.

This theatre is breathtaking. We went to see the Spokane Symphony and were quite frankly distracted by the amazing detail on the walls.

I have been privileged to visit this theater often. It is a beautiful restored theater that is home to The Spokane Symphony. It is a wonderful example of Art Nouveau! Whether one is there for an event or a concert, or just visiting; it is well worth a peek.

The acoustics in this gorgeous art deco theater are phenomenal. I heard Tony Bennett perform here. He was so thrilled with the acoustics that he put down his microphone and spoke and sang without it to demonstrate the sound quality. Opera star Thomas Hampson, The Spokane Symphony and Pink Martini are just a few other performers who come to life... More

The last time i was here was for the 'Breaking Bad' final season premiere (including the previous episode). Of course the audience was 110% into the show, and the place was serving beer. Even if you are slightly bored with whatever you went to see, just take some time to check out the decor and architecture. Stunning and way more... More

We went to the Fox to see the Spokane Symphony on May 11 for the Russian concert. As usual the building and inside is just so impressive. I can't stop staring at all of the beautiful art. The music was exceptional with the orchestra and the choir. It just leaves you breathless. So worth the time , effort and money... More
