We attended a wedding at the Theatre over Labor Day Weekend. The Auditorium is absolutely beautiful. I would love to attend a concert there next.

This Art Deco era theatre 🎭 has been renovated beautifully. I’d like more leg room, but that’s just for stretching stiff knees—my issue. The sound acoustics are fabulous. Always a pleasure to visit this downtown Spokane treasure!

Formerly a motion picture theater known as "The Fox," it was magnificently restored and reopened in 2007. It is now the home of the Spokane Symphony and serves that function gloriously. But it's worth a visit just to admire the venue.

The staff there were really super. Everyone was so sweet and really lovely from the staff at the bar, to the staff assisting you when you were going to your seat. Unusually nice people!
