“One of the Grand Dames of US Theaters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

It's massive, (over 4000 seats), and decorated in Egyptian and Moroccan motif, all the rage in the predepression days in which it was built. Turned into a porno theater and almost destroyed, it's immaculately maintained now. Fabulous to see a show, but the tours twice a week are the best way to see it all... especially the restrooms.

Beautiful venue, very neat experience! Just because it's at the Fox, I would see just about any show, any concert, any play!

“Makes you feel special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

Makes even the most mundane show seem better. Even "Dora the Explorer" is tolerable when seen at the Fox. The cosy lighting, the furnishings, the over the top - going back in time feeling. That is why I love to come to this venue.
