“Nostalgia Reigns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

If you want to see what a theater was like 50 plus years ago, go to the Fox, Listen to a symphony, hear a band, watch a play; and while you are there take a moment to lean back and look at the stars twinkling in the ceiling. An old venue that's seen a lot of history but still retains its class.

“1930's concert hall with great acoustics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

I've seen some pretty major performances at this 1930's restored theater. Reminds me of some of the San Francisco performing arts venues., Great acoustics and ambiance. HOme of the Tulare County Symphony. As with most older buildings, not very ADA friendly with long bathroom lines.

“Jackson Browne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

A wonderful small venue to see this solo acoustic concert in. For this crowd the allowed us to bring a glass of wine into the theater. A beautiful historical place with wonderful acoustics for a show such as this. The staff were kind, snack options were limited. Overall, a great time was had by all here. I would return.

“Night at the Movies”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

Average theatre with multiple screens. Cute downtown area. Nice seating. The projection cut out in the middle of the film, but the house lights came up and it only took a couple of minutes for them to get it running again.

“Just like the old days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

My wife is a native of Visalia. We walked around the Main Street area and were amazed at the changes in the town. Most of the businesses she remembers from so many years ago are gone - replaced with new and interesting restaurants and shops.
She was delighted to look into the lobby of the Theatre to see that it looks much as it did 50 years ago. Elegant decor and architecture - a standard in movie theatres in those days. They apparently host a number of concerts and events, so it's good to see the old place alive and an active part of the community. Too many "historic" structures have been torn down in the name of progress...whatever that is.
