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!

“Classic, but Mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Although the Fabulous Fox is a STL tradition I feel the shows they pull in are lacking in talent. They used to pull in big and new shows, but now I feel they need to reevaluate their seasons. I would rather go to the Peabody Opera House.

“Great entertainment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This theater has been restored and has all kinds of entertainment. It is beautiful inside and worth the trip if you are visiting the St. Louis area. It has first class broadway shows and great musical groups. A wonderful evening out on the town!

“I could sit in this Theatre with nothing on Stage!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is an amazing venue for any type of show. I can't believe that this used to be just a movie theatre. Just walking into the place is breath taking! Take the behind the scene tour.

“dissappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

a great place to see...one of the great palaces in america built during the 1930's by the wpa....wonderful inside...the acoustics leave something to be desired...you can have a bad seat here...it is so cavernous...you get lost if you arent in the middle or upfront....I sat in the last row on the mail floor....$100 a seat.....could really see or hear the lion king at all.....quite a dissappointment
