one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Staff is great as well and helpful. Great place to go to a concert, the spokane symphony is amazing. The bathrooms area very nice and always clean, and there is a small bar inside run by Beacon Catering. Brownies are very good. Really a neat place to just walk through.

Amazing venue. Incredible show. As is all too often the case, alcohol was an issue as a few folks, including some behind us, were too drunk to allow the rest of us to really enjoy the experience as much as we should have for $50/ticket. Thus the average rating. The old demon alcohol.

The Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox (commonly referred to by locals just as "the Fox") is an unbeatable Spokane gem. Catch a symphony concert or ballet here and you will not regret it. If that's not in your budget or if there is nothing on while you are in town, it's still worth stepping into the ornate foyer for... More

We attend events quite often and have always found the experience wonderful. The building has been wonderfully restored an with the exception of close seating, it is perfect for all types of music, and other events.

This Fox Theater, originally built in the 1930's has been completely restored to original glory. It is now the home of the Spokane Symphony, an excellent regional orchestra. The acoustics are outstanding, and there is not a bad seat in the house. If you visit, plan to arrive early so that you can take in the amazing ceiling ornamentation and... More

We went to the symphony here one evening, and were delighted. The art deco decor is, of course, fabulous. The theatre had good seating, seeming at the same time to be spacious and cozy. The acoustics were perfect. Views from any seat were great. Aisles were big enough to move a slow crowd relatively well. Lobby was nice, location is... More

This is a beautiful venue. The architecture is Art Deco and had been refurbished to bring out the stunning beauty of the building. My favorite seats are the first two rows of the balcony. The acoustics are good and I can also see the details of the theater.

I just love the Fox Theater. I wasn't in Spokane early enough to remember the theater in its original state, but I do remember it's being subdivided into movie theaters....ugly and the seat I sat in the last time I was there put a hole in the back of my jeans. What a transformation it was, thanks to the Spokane... More

Attended EWU event featuring Jared Diamond. He was excellent but the theater always shines. Great job EWU, Jared Diamond, and as always, the Martin Woldson Theater never fails to impress!
