Owner description: The Fabulous Fox Theatre first opened in 1929 as a movie palace in William Fox's motion picture empire. The theatre was reopened in 1982, and today it is one of the most exquisite venues in the country to enjoy live touring Broadway shows, concerts, and comedians. We hope you'll visit us for an upcoming show or one of our guided tours!

“A Great Show!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We saw The Lion King, and it was an overall great experience. The quality of the show, the acoustics in the theatre, the comfort of the seats, all made for an enjoyable night. It does get a little chaotic outside the theatre and just inside the doors- a system to keep people organized might be helpful, as some were rushing in as if it were a general first-come, first-serve seating show. We will definitely return!

“stunning design and architecture, excellent event staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

we were here for a wedding, and it was INCREDIBLE. we spent hours wandering around and looking at all the detail in the walls, ceilings, etc. it's beautiful. the wonderful staff gave tours of the facility, and handled catering dinner, cocktails, and dancing for over 200 people. an AMAZING place to host an event. truly unique and spectacular. kudos to the fox theater staff and all who maintain this historic place.

“Elegant old theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We saw the Book of Mormon here in February and had a great time. The seats were comfortable but I think we've been spoiled by stadium seating and it was annoying to have big headed people sitting in front of us. Overall it was a great experience and the theatre is very beautiful, with chandeliers all over the ceiling, giving a very turn-of-the-20th-century feel to the venue.

“Wow! Outstandingly Beautiful Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

My family and I saw the play 'War Horse' in March of 2013. While we certainly enjoyed the play, The Fox Theatre itself was simply beautiful and we enjoyed seeing it as much as the play! We arrived about 45 minutes early and spent most of the time looking around at the marvelous architecture: the ceilings, the carvings, the paintings, the décor, and the live music on the pipe organ were all such a wonderful delight. And sipping some good sparkling wine just added to the enjoyment. Can't wait to go back!

“See this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The Fox has shows all year long and they give tours of the theater if you can't stay for a show. See this place if you are in St Louis.
