The renovation of the Fox Theater, as we the locals call it, is magnificent! Inside and out the have done a stunning job of creating dramatic retro style and allow the flow of large numbers of people. Minimal food service, drinks available.

I recently had the privilege of attending a fun event at the "Fox". (It happened to be a screening of the old Charlie Chaplin classic silent film, City Lights, with the Spokane Symphony playing the music score). I was once again reminded of how amazing this theatre is. Besides from the jaw-dropping lighting on the ceilings and walls, and the... More

I have many concerts including the Spokane orchestra at this venue & it is a treasure to visit as well as to hear how lush the sound of music can be. Parking is not that difficult to find in the area and the theater is quite elegant (a throwback to the 1930s).

This venue has been beautifully restored in the Art Deco style. Home of the Spokane Symphony, which performs a full schedule. Other performances, too. Tours of building available. This building is Spokane's history on display. Truly beautiful!

Whether it's the symphony, Arlo Guthrie and Family, Pat Metheny with the Whitworth Jazz Orchestra or Boz Scaggs, this venue is the best! The sound quality is awesome and there's not a bad seat in the house. I would have season tickets to the symphony if I could afford it - retirement doesn't pay that well! But we go whenever... More

This was the Spokane Symphony's New Year's Eve special concert: Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Loved the music but didn't care for the soloists or the 65 member chorale. Would have been better with just the symphony. The Fox theater is a wonderful venue.

The shows in this theatre are great! I love the style of this place as it makes you feel as if you just stepped into the past and are one of the wealthy few who get to enjoy a show at the "theater."

An exquisitely beautiful venue for concerts. The Whitworth University Jazz Festival was awesome. The Art Deco building has been fully restored back to its original beauty.

The Spokane Symphony, Choral, Soloist and Coeur D Alene Opera under the Always Outstanding Direction of Eckart Preu presented Spokanites with an incredible production that was astounding. On a freezing cold night, we were warmed by this complex, challenging and exquisite opera. We always come away from the symphony wondering how it can get better. Yet in new ways, it... More

Whatever the show or subject matter presented, this historic (1931) theater offers quality entertainment in a beautifully renovated, art deco theme, , , a trip through Spokane's past. The rather "close quarters" of the lobby, halls, & stairs offer opportunities to meet & chat with other visitors while sipping the spirits available at a reasonable cost.
