I've been going to the Fox Theater since I was a little kid & they did a nice job refurbishing the place. Seats are comfortable & spaced well enough that you're not sitting on one another. HOWEVER, the concessions are ridiculous. $5 for a .20¢ bottle of water is a joke. And, although we enjoy a craft beer or an... More

Seats are very comfortable and Bathrooms very clean. The area in fairly safe with a few transients. The Mission inn is... More

I saw Daughtry on Thursday, October 6th. It had been all remodeled years back. I would highly recommend this venue. Can see from everywhere. The free parking lot however across the street does back rather quickly for shows, so I recommend that you get there early for the best parking.

We went to a concert here last night. It is an old, historic theater that has worked hard to bring a well-rounded program of entertainment. We saw the group Straight No Chaser, who are very good. My only complaint would be that the shows don't start on time. It's like they want to make sure everyone has time to spend... More

My wife and I have attended theater productions at the Fox Theater for more than 30 years. Is always an enjoyable experience. Not many of these theaters left. The building is a theater as well as a work of architectural art. Get there early for a play, and you can enjoy a performance from the world famous Fox Theater Pipe... More

Really enjoy this venue. The downtown area has lots to offer for dinner before the show. Easy in and out. We live in the Inland Empire and it's so much easier than driving to L.A.

We have seen several shows at the Fox and have always been pleased. The seats are comfortable and all good for viewing the shows. The bar was excellent as well. Parking is plentiful. We will be back!

I have seen about 20 different acts at the Riverside Fox-mostly concerts, but also one play. The theater is absolutely beautiful- restored to it's original glory and renovated for today's sound needs- you just can't go wrong with a concert at the Riverside Fox.

My wife and I had a great time at the Fox. The seats are comfortable and the view of the stage perfect. I remember going to see movies at the Fox in the 70's. What a great change they did to the place. Perfect entertainment and they put on lots of events. Excellent time.
