Beautifully remodaled theatre

The Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox, or "The Fox" as it is affectionately known in Spokane is a delight. From the outside the theater is very unassuming but once you pass through it's doors you are transported into a another time. The fox was painstakingly renovated to it's original art deco charm, but all of the amenities are modern.... More

Not every city - small, medium or large - has a venue such as the Fox. Lovingly restored in the last decade, this art deco classic serves as the permanent home for the Spokane Symphony and hosts dozens of world-class musicians and performers year-round. Something about being at the Fox elevates a normally amazing entertainment experience to a higher level... More

An absolutely beautiful venue! This is an old movie theatre where I saw many movies as a child and is now home to the Spokane Symphony. Even Trace Adkins commented on the beauty of the venue. Will be seeing Pink Floyd there in August. Don't hesitate to see a show here!

Went to the symphony here and enjoyed every moment. The decor is so well done and beautiful. It has a wonderful sound quality during the performance. All in all, I felt entertained and well taken care of.

If you are an Art Deco or History fan, make sure you take the time to see this amazing building and wonderful restoration job. I was there for Antique Roadshow and got a tour of the building and hear the story of its restoration. It is a highlight in Spokane.

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
