The best concert hall in town by far! Acoustically flawless and recently renovated this is home to the classiest acts that come to town! Smack dead in the center of town surrounded by hip restaurants and a young college crowd it is fascinating to see the mixture of folks young and old swarming around in the formerly barren business district....

The Fox is a beautifully restored theater. Tuscon citizens should be forever grateful for saving and restoring this historical theater for future generations.

The Fox Theater was restored to it's original Art Deco period. I couldn't stop looking at. From the ceiling to light fixtures, painting of the walls it is a real treasure. We have been their for a concert twice and the acoustics are great, and no support poles block your view. It's small and intimate and the seats are very... More

We stopped in to see a movie. The theater takes you back to the 60's. The seats were old school and the snack bar was basic popcorn, soda and candy. The theather advertised upcoming events like highlighting stars of the past.

They did a fabulous job at renovating this theater. The old time theater feel made me think of going to the movies when I was a kid.

This was my first time seeing a show at The Fox and I have to say that I was very impressed. The venue is cozy and small which allows for a really intimate performance. We came to see George Thorogood , whom I've seen many times and always in a much larger venue. It was a great experience to see... More

We watched a show the other night and I was very pleased by the Fox Theater. It is small enough to be intimate without being claustrophobic. The bathrooms are clean and easy to access. I look forward to the next show here.
