I have visited the Fox dozens of times over the past 20 years and I always love it. I've attended concerts, movies, operas, plays, dances, speeches and all sorts of programs there. I've also performed there so can speak to both "front of house and back of house" issues. The Fox was built as a movie house back in the... More

The Fox is one of the classic movie and performance theaters from the 20's still standing and in good shape. It looks and feels like an Arabian Citadel, complete with desert evening sky. Attending an event there leaves you wondering how a place like this ever got built. The tour not only answers that question, but really wows you with... More

The place is very pretty, good acoustics. Like most old theatres needs more rest rooms. Seating sections are somewhat confusing. However I don't think you can have a bad seat for a play.

My husband and I took our girls (11 and 12) to see a Broadway production of The Little Mermaid. It was everything we hoped for! The beautiful theater was awesome. We all enjoyed the play and had no problem seeing or hearing from our seats which were up on the second level. They were off to the side, but we... More

A piece of history, the décor is beautiful, always a great place to go. If you are going for a concert, the sound is pretty good. The balcony is always a fun place to sit.

I have been to the Fox many times and it never disappoints. The ambiance and decor are unmatched. I have come to prefer the loge to the orchestra because the line of sight is better for short people. I'm 4'10"!

I have made the 5 hour drive twice to the Fox Theater and though I do love the history of the place I believe it leaves a lot to be desired. The main issue for me is the size. It is simply to deep and many of the seats are too far away from the stage, Of course, those who... More
