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.

The Fox Theater in Riverside, CA had some premier showings in the old days. It was then closed for many years. It reopened a few years ago. We have seen some shows there in recent times: Bill Cosby, Jerry Lewis, Bill Maher and more.

While the seats are on the narrow side, the decor almost makes up for this. The sound is also excellent. Unfortunately, I have never heard of many of the productions and would say the sister theatre in San Bernardino has better selection. The cost of tickets is high and almost equal to a Vegas show. That being said, the shows... More

My husband and I have gone to many performances at Fox. Benise, twice that's for sure. Comedians have been awesome. The bar also has hosted some "open mic" events and we have come to those. There is just a fine ambiance when you come to the Fox Center. Seriously, it is comfortable and not too far from other places to... More

Had a great time at the Riverside Auditorum, I have been lucky that I have always got the VIP Pass and you get extras, you get to go to the VIP lounge Have your own little bar and extra appetizers.
