Went to see a concert there. The venue is absolutely beautiful, gorgeous, awe-inspiring, breath-taking. One of a kind historic architecture and wonderfully preserved. There are no bad seats in the house. We were pretty high up and could still see everything perfectly. Great climate control, was nice and cool. Went in winter a few years ago and it was warm....

One of the most beautiful buildings I have ever been in. I love that it's largely original inside and out. The golden days of theater where people would dress in tuxedos and ball gowns still emanates from the atmosphere. The shows are always done in high quality and are every bit as good as if this was Broadway.

This theatre is extremely nice & every seat is a good seat. I've been coming to the FOX since the MOTOWN REVUE was held here in the 60's & 70's. Very nice you will enjoy.

We attended a Ringo Starr show recently at the Fox Theatre, the venue is amazing. It has that "old" American style with huge pillars, red carpets and gold everywhere and offers a great audio experience when you listen to live music. The place was sold out but still spacious and convenient if one wanted to go to the restroom or... More

I don't know why TA considers this an "attraction". It's a theatre. Unless you have tickets to some event within, you're really not going to be visiting otherwise. That said, it is a beautiful theatre.

Great venue, easy parking ($15.00), great sound and easy to get on the highway to go home. Love this venue. Make reservations at Hockeytown for a bite to eat. The seats are comfortable, great acoustics. I always try to see bands here.

I was blown away at the interior of this theatre. When I saw a show there the sound was fantastic and I doubt there is a bad seat, but I was mesmerized by how beautiful the theatre is inside. It's a piece of art. The washrooms were even nice!

I've been to the Fox theatre several times now and decided I should give my opinion here. This has to be one of the most beautiful theatres I have ever been in. It's one of the largest theatres in the USA. I am so glad that the Ilich family took part in the preservation of this beauty. What a shame... More
