This theater has been brought back to it's original state. The acoustics are amazing and the beautiful renovation is quite extraordinary. It's worth going to a venue here just to see the theater walls and ceiling.

I have been going to the Fox Theater since I was a child. It has never been more beautiful than it is now and I'm so happy we may all still attend and enjoy performances here.

Spent a evening at a social event with our conference. Amazing remodeling of a old classic. Well done and great sound. Worth a visit if you have a chance to attend a event or play.

Attending a performance at the Fox is a step back into the art deco era. It has been completely restored back to it's glory days. The sound is perfect, surrounding you with what ever music you have gone to see. The Fox is a treat for the eyes and the ears.

We recently attended the Spokane Symphony and it was very nice. The theater has so much history, and I even got to meet the small team of painters who also tour the USA to restore many other public historic buildings. The colors are so alive with art deco designs, textures and the soft gold lighting is impressive. When you have... More

We went to the Beach Boys concert at the remodeled Fox, and it was great. The seating was much more pleasant than when we attended a concert (or even a comedy show) at the casino as the seats were stationary, didn't tip, and didn't allow for seat area spillage.The only downside is having to stand around in limited space before...

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.
