“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Gorgeous Art Deco, excellent sound. Seeing any performance here is a treat and hearing a concert is a greater treat. It helps that the Spokane Symphony is outstanding

“A treasure saved from the wrecking ball!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

The Fox is an example of a near tragedy of historical preservation turned into a success story. After being shuttered, in a run down part of town, it was finally purchased by the Symphony. Although they did expand the back section to accommodation their needs, historical preservation appears to be taken into account on the rest of the restoration. It is one of the FINEST example of art deco and a must so for those who appreciate this. The filigree style paintings are only bested by the incredible light fixtures. Thank you to the private donor who funded this project. NOTE: this part of town seems to have been reclaimed and makes for an interesting little "walk about" with its quaint cafe's and taverns.

“Beautiful”

The theater is a treat in itself...what ever the occassion. I happened to be at a fund raiser event...and I am sure that the surroundings helped.

“Great Place to be!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

A wonderful old restored Theater. Go see the Spokane Youth Symphony, Spokane String Quartet, and Spokane Symphony there! Clean, beautiful place with plenty of seating, and great prices on tickets.
