This is a beautiful venue. The architecture is Art Deco and had been refurbished to bring out the stunning beauty of the building. My favorite seats are the first two rows of the balcony. The acoustics are good and I can also see the details of the theater.

I just love the Fox Theater. I wasn't in Spokane early enough to remember the theater in its original state, but I do remember it's being subdivided into movie theaters....ugly and the seat I sat in the last time I was there put a hole in the back of my jeans. What a transformation it was, thanks to the Spokane... More

Attended EWU event featuring Jared Diamond. He was excellent but the theater always shines. Great job EWU, Jared Diamond, and as always, the Martin Woldson Theater never fails to impress!

This theater hosts some fabulous performances, but the theater itself is a work of art. For anyone who enjoys art deco, this facility is a visual feast.

Fox Theatre is a beautifully resorted venue in downtown Spokane. It is breathtaking, and more importantly, the sound system is great. Saw Pink Martini out of Portland and would definitely go again to both the theatre and the performance.

The city's finest restored movie theater has wonderful Art Deco features and, as home to the Spokane Symphony it is known for its excellent acoustics. There's very little not to like.

This is an old Fox theater that has been renovated back into it's once glory. Very comfortable seating and the acoustics are perfect. Our symphony has made it it's home.

Every seat gave great view of stage and acoustics, but they ran out of beer and water by intermission. Great downtown location close to hotels and restaraunts.
