“Beautifully Restored historic theater.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This theater has been lovingly restored, and is a site for many functions. Downtown makes it accessible to all the arts and museums and sights of our booming downtown area.

“A Reconditioned Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a great remodeled venue. Music, film and lectures are some of the events that you might attend in the splendor of an old time movie palace.

“One of the great theaters restored to greatness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

My wife and I attend several events a year here, the most recent being the fantastic Happy Together tour. The restoration done to the venue is outstanding, maintaining all the charm of old time theaters but incorporation modern technology to insure that lightning and sound is top rate.

Tons of parking surrounds the area, including a lot of meter parking that is free after 5:00PM and on Sundays. Some good restaurants in the area although for some reason I don't understand, most of them are closed on Sundays even with a show at the Fox. Elliotts is open and has pub style fare and is pretty good.

The theater seems to attract some very good second tier entertainment, prices are reasonable in today's world and there are no bad seats in the whole place. People tend to be very friendly, the shows start on time and acoustics are very good. If you've never been, you owe it to yourself to take in a live show here and experience a little piece of the past.

No bad seats in the house. We saw the Happy together 2013 Tour there. Very nice and comfortable; and the crowd was very enthusiastic.

“Great lineups”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Its a beautifully restored theater and they have the shows I want to see. Its fun to go to a concert there and walk around downtown before and/or after. Invariably, when I see who is touring in Tuson, the show I like ar always at the beautiful Fox.
