The place is beautiful. It is small but this adds to the pleasure of being there. They have done a great job in keeping the original flavor of this theater.

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

Outstanding Art Deco interior. Great acoustics! Try not to get tickets under the balcony on the first floor, for best sound. The whole balcony has great views. Smaller setting than the Opera House (INB), larger than the Met (Bing). A must-see Spokane venue!

The Martin Wolfson Theater in the old Fox building in the center of downtown is a great location to hear and see the Spokane Symphony - possibly the best orchestra between Minneapolis and Seattle. Be sure get there to hear the conductors pre-show talks if they are offered. The restored Art-Deco decorations are truly over the top!

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....
