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

We love going to concerts at the fox! Classic venue, they did a great job of restoring the building. Wish they had a better selection of food and beverages tho.

Nice restored venue. Small enough to be close to performers. I love concerts and movies at the Fox Theater

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!

The Fox has very good acoustics, that make a concert enjoyable, Not a bad seat in the house, I prefer to sit about 5 rows back so you can see the whole stage a little better.

My favorite venue for entertainment in town. It is great! I have seen art movies there, comedy shows, and great musicians and bands. I highly recommend you check their FB page for upcoming events.
