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!

“Superb, Incredible, a Must Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

My wife and I have been here many times, the latest to hear Diana Krall; the interior is so well restored, the sound and venue is great, and the staff are fantastic. Arrive a little early so you can walk around and admire, see the theater organ in action, and admire the interior details. This is one of the things I'll miss most about St Louis.

“Classic theatre, very well adorned inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Classic theatre, very well adorned inside. Good food too, way to go chef. Love the feel of the place, feels like a historic yet regal venue to catch a performance.

“It really is fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Take the tour or arrive early for a show and wander around -- from the huge main lobby (with private dining area) to the fourth level (with a great view of the ceiling mural) to the lounge and restroom (with original fixtures and tiles). Fabulous indeed.

“For The Love Of Elvis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

great show...................hope you have me back ............................great turn out.

The Fox Theater in St. Louis is an amazing experience. The architecture and decor is absolutely beautiful. The show was electrifying and the atmosphere is exciting. and I have seen several musicals there and have absolutely loved them. The tickets are a little expensive but it's worth every cent.

“Fantastic Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is an old school gilded palace. The theater is beautiful. The sound is great. Floor seats are better than the upper balcony which is not for the feint of heart. There is a café next door, and one with a bar across the seat. They fill up very quickly right before a performance, so allow plenty of time if you intend to eat before going to the theater. They offer senior discounts many times on the day of the performance if it is not sold out.
