The Fox Theater is a must see. Not only is it beautiful but it offers a variety of entertainment. It is one of Tucson's treasures. I saw Steve Winwood there and he was wonderful. Also have seen movies there and other shows.

Love the theater ..it is a great place to see an old movie. But did not enjoy it as a concert venue. Sounds was not good. Then the AC Happened to go out the same day so it was a bit miserable. It would have been a great gesture it give water out for free but at least it was... More

Offering a diverse lineup of live performances, concerts and fan favorite movies, the Fox is a Tucson gem. The theater is gorgeous and after an extensive, multi-million dollar renovation, it offers a state of the art experience. It's a favorite of performers and audiences, alike. A small snack bar offers reasonably priced beer, wine and some snacks. My favorite place... More

A lovely place to see a show. It has been beautifully restored. We don't mind getting balcony seats as it has its own bar and the sight lines are great. Public parking nearby is easy and inexpensive.

The Fox Theater is one of the few older (and therefore charming) buildings in the architectural wasteland that is Tucson. I attended multiple lectures given at the Fox fall of 2013 and enjoyed seeing the multi-colored frescoes that adorn the ceiling of the theater during that time. I admired the carved wood work, the quaintly squeaking steps that add texture... More

Coming down from Phoenix to see Stephen Stills at this wonderful theatre. Once again it was a treat to be in a real theatre, we only have the Orpheum in Phoenix, which while nice, rarely puts on shows in comparison. The Fox is always a treat and this time was no exception. A point of pride for Tucson no doubt... More

We attended the In The Mood concert in March and it was our first experience at the Fox. It's a nice program and was reasonably well attended, but the hall was not totally full. As previous reviewers have reported, the seats are very much on the small side and the leg room is limited. This won't be a problem for... More

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....
