Attending the symphony here is always a treat! The place is just awesome to look at since they renovated with full Art Deco style.

We attended the Spokane Symphony-Hitcock's Psycho even, which was absolutely top-notch. We were in the front seats on the loge level. The restored decor, the size of the stage, and the seating are all excellent.

1929 restored movie house now home to the Spokane Symphony. Excellent acoustics. When it opened Tony Bennett preformed. He had the amplification turned off and people sitting in the back row of the balcony could hear him with out any problem. Not to be missed.

Wonderful that we have such a great orchestra. If they're performing while you're visiting, try and get some tickets. Eat at the Davenport and parking is free. Theater was totally restored and is gorgeous.

Heard Spokane Symphony here -- an excellent ensemble. They offered Mahler Five, a stunning work, stunningly done. Acoustics are excellent. Interior is over-the-top art deco.

This is a national treasure! It's beautiful sounding, looking, is comfortable, and interesting in every way. I just love it! There isn't a bad seat in the house. Just get there early to admire the decor. Walk, drive, take a train, take a plane... get there and experience the Fox.

We came to this theater to listen to Beethoven's 9th symphony, right on the New Year's Eve and loved it. This theater was nicely decorated and many people were dressed up for the occasion, drinking champaign and feeling happy and excited - great atmosphere of a holiday season. I also like the interior of the performance hall and the seats... More

Amazing to think that this spectacular theatre was once to be leveled for a parting lot! Well worthas Elia.tripto enjoy its visual splendours which extend from wonderful murals to fine fanciful period decor everywhere -- ceilings included! We have visited many times (usually to hear the Spokane Symphony) and ever cease to be impressed.

Loved the restored Deco decor. Will-call tickets were waiting for us as promised. Had very little trouble finding parking nearby.
