Banff Films seen here!

Beautiful theater and I watched two nights of Banff Films. If you like adventure sports, these are films to check out when on world tour.

Lovely old theatre, good acoustics and well run by a very dedicated volunteer group. We saw Darlene Love, under the street lamp and James Van Praagh. All excellent shows. Do go when you are in Tucson, they have a terrific variety of entertainment very reasonable priced by today's standards. We need to support these old theatres to keep them open.

There is some real history with this theater in Tucson and it's a really great concert venue. Comfortable seating and great acoustics as well as a very successful renovation. Enjoy your chosen show!

We went to the theatre for the first time in downtown Tucson. The theatre reminds us of Miami Beach's Art Deco. The theatre has great sound, seats and is very nice. We were very pleased with it.

We took the docent led tour and it was very informative. Tours are held on the second Tuesday of the month at noon. The theater is a beautifully restored example of art deco. Minimal suggested donation of $5 is worth it. They have pins and t-shirts for sale after the tour. Seems like a great concert venue too; the acoustics... More

The theater is downtown. Easy to find. Next to it are a some small restaurants. They are really working hard to get good shows and activities into this theater and it is well maintained and pretty. Easy access to bathrooms etc. Any wheelchair and stroller ( if show would be for kids ) has an easy time to get around.... More

we enjoyed the show we saw at the Fox, Gladys Knight. Great venue as it is small and intimate. Old style of live theater. Reasonable ticket pricing. We enjoyed seats two rows from the stage, great eye contact with Gladys!

Beautiful! Attractions vary - old films, live concerts, etc. Whatever you see will be better because you saw it in this colorful, over-the-top art deco theater from the Roaring 20s.

We’ve been to many shows at the Fox Theater and have always enjoyed sitting in the balcony. They offer love seat type chairs which are very comfortable; not to mention, it lets you snuggle with your honey too. There really isn’t a bad seat in the house. I would hope that Fox Theater’s website would add a link to some... More

Gorgeous theatre maintained in the Art Deco style. Kudos to Tuscon for keeping this heritage building. Saw Roseanne Cash here. Great acoustics and sight lines even in the top balcony.
