If you enjoy taking a trip back in time then the Fox Theater is a place you need to visit. The movies are often classics, but get there early to enjoy viewing the design of the theater--you'll be impressed. Be aware that it also comes with a hint of "old" regarding the interior smell. I was told it isn't mold,... More

have seen half a dozen concerts there and they have all been great. The theater is beautiful and the sounds quality is great not too big so you are close everyplace in the house. My wife and I like the upstairs couches made for two then we can sit with each other and enjoy the act.

Have been to the Fox a few times and was pleased with the excellent restoration. The last time was for a concert, the sound is very good and the seating is comfortable. For those who wish to have a drink you can visit the spacious bar upstairs, where you will not wait long as they have lots of help. A... More

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
