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.

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.
