They have a large variety of shows, name entertainers..net net a large variety. The theater is nostalgic and fun to be in. I gave it an average because its a little tough to park, downtown Tucson at night can be intimidating especially if the UA kids are partying or its late getting out. Im not saying its not safe because... More

Our latest trip to Fox Theater was a comedy show with our kids (12, 10 & 2). It was just as much fun to see them enjoy the art deco interior as it was for us when we had been earlier in the year for an adult show. My two year old is in love with the clamshell water fountain.... More

Have seen two fabulous shows at the Fox this summer and looking forward to several more this winter. The inside of the theatre is gorgeous with all of the original decoration beautifully restored.

My then fiance and I attended and thoroughly enjoyed The Hit Men concert. The renovated art deco Fox Theater is a work of art in itself, and the acoustics are great for music events. We look forward to attending more events at the Fox.

Visitors to Tucson and locals alike should not miss this spectacular Southwest, Art Deco gem in the center of Tucson's vibrant new downtown. Superb renovation and faithful refurbishment have restored the glory to this architectural treasure, in whose nostalgic seats many baby-boomer Tucsonons stole their first furtive fumbling kisses in the smoke-filled 1940's. Now a venue for great entertainment and... More

Love this theater, went to see Greg Allman Band, it was good. The painting on the ceiling and walls is entertainment unto themselves, most beautiful.

The stage and ceiling outdo whatever you're there to see, they're just so intricate and gorgeous. Great location too, right on the edge of downtown.

The original Fox was nothing more than a movie theater back 30 + years ago. It fell on hard times and was closed for over twenty years. When the thought of restoring it came to be it was like opening a time capsule, thank goodness it has been revived and now great concerts are being held there. Glad to see... More
