Nice venue for live music (stay away from the area under the balcony). Seats are comfortable and reasonably spaced, the concessions are reasonably priced and carry a good variety of alcoholic and non alcoholic. The building is an art deco treasure that has been well restored at great cost. It's a really good place to see a concert and its... More

I have been in this theater twice and have enjoyed that the theater is small enough to see the stage from most seats. One can get drinks and popcorn before the show and there is a relaxed attitude while waiting to enter the theater. The staff is friendly and efficient. The acoustics are good and one can hear from the... More

Beautifully restored old theater in downtown Tucson. Many concerts, shows and events happening all year long. Balcony seating is 2-person love seats with great views of the stage.

The more often we come here, the more we appreciate the FOX. There just is no comparison to the acoustics at Centennial Hall. Here, you can hear each sound with such clarity. The smallness and coziness of this venue makes one feel very much a part of the show. We always sit in the First Balcony (Dress Circle) and can... More

Been here several times for musicals, plays, concerts, most recently for a delightful competition between the winning Arizona High School musical singers. Parking is difficult. Nice to eat at next-door Subway. High entry prices.

Just saw Jesse Cook in concert here a few nights ago. I loved that they were able to keep an old movie theatre alive by giving it a new life as a concert venue. The theatre is small with a great balcony which makes it a nice place for concerts. The balcony has (love seats) so you purchase one ticket... More

The first time I walked into the Fox Theatre I was mesmerized by the magnificent renovation, which transformed this historical theater into a masterpiece. The seats are comfortable, and the theatre's design makes it possible to see from any seat. It is an architectural tour de force, and it features some of the best touring artists.

The Fox gets great musical groups as well as special events and good old fashioned...movies! The restoration is worth seeing. Be sure to go up into the balcony for a better view of the decor. All seats are good for concerts.

This was our first time to see a show in this renovated, historical theater and have no doubt we will be seeing more shows here in the future. The restoration was done well and there are many interesting architectural features and fortunately the restoration was done with an ear to acoustics and the seats restored with an eye to comfort....

Just saw Irving Berlin last night and it was fabulous. Great production. AZ can do some creative sets. The theatre is comfortable and cozy. No bad seats, although we like to seat near the stage. We choose our performances - over the past few years, we've had to be more selective as some shows can be offensive to us with... More
