“Limited seating space”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Very crowded, limited leg room, people kept getting up throughout performances to get drinks and use the restroom and had to climb over you a lot.

“Fox Theater”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

If your visiting Visalia its a good idea to check whats happening at the Fox Theater. They book a wide variety of concerts/shows. Often have good comedians. It was an older style movie theater. hLots of good reseraunts within walking distance. Or just windo shopping on main street can be fun.

“History here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Check their schedule to catch one of their many shows. I love the open seating area, usually best to get on of first 60 rows, but all usually good.

“Beatles Tribute”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This was the best show we've seen in a long time. The entertainers were great and sounded pretty much like the real Beatles. The crowd really got into it. As far as the Fox, it was wonderful. Seats were comfortable with plenty of leg room. It is beautiful inside and good looking on the outside. I will be back often.

“Classic small town movie palace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Visalia's Fox Theater is now a community performance venue. It was built for movies and stage performances in the early 20th century and provided a Moorish fantasy garden.

We were there for a BB King concert. We had a great time. It seems some A list performers book into the Fox for mid week performances as they travel between the larger cities. Local and regional acts also perform there. If you are going to be in the area check their website or the local paper.

The Fox is on Visalia's lively Main Street, There are many good restaurants within a short walk.

Go for the 1930's feeling and the interesting mix of performances. However be prepared for the possibility of a lack luster sound system and seating that can be a bit tight.

It is worth a visit.
