Can't beat this as a big name artist concert venue

Fox Theater is a great place to see big name artists far closer than at larger stadium type venues at a fraction of the cost. You'll be much closer than at regular no club venues... read more

Fox Theater is a great place to see big name artists far closer than at larger stadium type venues at a fraction of the cost. You'll be much closer than at regular no club venues in a comfortable seat. Great concert value for big names.

I have attended several events at the Fox. they ranged from fund raisers to concerts. The fund raisers usually included a classic movie. The concerts ran the gambit from country to blues with a few comic shows.

I've been dancing with my 14 year old daughter for 9 years in the annual "father/daughter dance" recitals for a while.

This is a great place to see a show. Its a very intimate location with most seats being great. Bar lines can get a bit long =(

The Fox is a gem in downtown Bakersfield. The Art Deco theatre has been beautifully restored. I love the twinkling lights in the ceiling. The seats are comfortable, the acoustics are good, and there is really not a bad seat in the house. I particularly love the balcony. The ladies restrooms on the second floor are big and always clean.... More

Excellent historic theater. Just the right size for a stand-up. Jim Jefferies was terrific. Two hour set was hysterical.

Venue for music and movies. The indie films you won't find in the multiplexes. The people working to restore the theater are doing an excellent job!
