This was a movie (Casablanca) with the music performed by the Spokane Symphony. It was an interesting touch to a classic movie. The venue is beautiful (remodeled in style). I would visit the theater again when in Spokane. The event itself was good, but not great. There were times when the symphony overpowered the dialogue of the movie. The symphony... More

We got to attend the combined production by the Civic Theater and the Spokane Symphony last weekend. The production was great, but also spent time before and after the show admiring the art work and architecture of this renovated theater.

Martin Woldson Theater is a beautifully restored Art Deco concert hall in the European tradition. Enjoyment of a great performance of Beethoven,s 9th by the surprisingly gifted Spokane symphony, joined by the Spokane Corral and guest soloists, was enhanced by the rooms perfect acoustics, and with the stunning visual details one feels as if perhaps transported to Vienna or Milano....

In June we went to Spokane for the wedding of my partner's great niece and wedding was held at the Fox Theater. It was a wonderful venue, and a great site for a wedding. The ceremony was held on the stage, so there was ample room for any size crowd. We were impressed with how well preserved they made this... More

One of a kind theater preserved the Art Deco era in all its glory. Totally restored to almost original architecture and design. Excellent location for plays, symphony, etc. A must see in Spokane.

It's always nice to listen to the Spokane Orchestra's Christmas program, and everybody dresses up fabulously for the occasion. Throw in a couple hours beforehand at the Davenport for dinner and Christmas tree raffle shopping and you have a night full of memories with friends or loved ones.

Gorgeous antique theater. The acoustics are outstanding. Many excellent shows are booked here. Some restoration is ongoing due to its age. Nice hotels and restaurants are nearby.(Davenport is 2 blocks) Parking is iffy but possible if you don't mind a walk.

This is one of the most beautiful venues I have ever seen. I love Art Deco so just being in the Theatre was a treat. My husband and I attended "An Evening with David Sedaris" and the experience was great. I got to meet and speak with Mr. Sedaris and get his autograph on a book I owned and one... More
