I have been to this venue twice now, first for a symphony, and the second for a rock concert, and I have enjoyed it both times. It is a gorgeous, historical theatre, and sticking with the Fox tradition, it has an East Indian theme that transports you to another era when you enter. The twinkling stars above your head help to add the perfect touch.
The symphony I attended was everything that I thought it would be: breathtakingly beautiful. The rock concert I attended was actually better than I thought it would be! I loved that between the bands, different Visalia organizations were given the spotlight whether it was with a video shown to the crowd, or a representative speaking to the crowd. While it was warm in the theater during the concert, I can't say that I've ever been to a rock concert that wasn't warm! My seats for the concert were on the main floor, about 14 rows back, and they were absolutely perfect. I could see the bands perfectly, but wasn't too close as to get my ear drums blown away by the speakers. (We were warned when purchasing our tickets not to get too close to the sides of the stage, as the speakers were very loud- again, I'm pretty sure it's like this at every rock concert.) The staff at the Fox did an impeccable job of getting people in, keeping them safe and under control during the event, and getting people out. The security guards checked tickets of people who were trying to sneak to the front, which I respected.
All in all, it's a great venue, and I'm excited to attend another event there as soon as I can.
