Got invited to attend a show here with friends, I have not been in this theater since I was a kid, having grown up in Tucson. Saturday movies and cartoon (only 1), was 15 cents for kids and if you were a Crosswalk Safety Guard in school, as I was, you got a 5 cent voucher off the admission. I... More

Large enough to get a nice sized group in there but small enough so that the audience can connect with the performance no matter where one might be seated.

We love going to the Fox and frequent this place often for concerts. The seating is comfortable and there isn't a bad seat in the house. You get a up-close view of the performers and they often walk around through the venue during the concert- which makes it exciting. The old theater has been remodeled and when you can walk... More

The Fox is a restored theater. It was done beautifully. They have many great concerts there every year. We attend about 6 per year. They also have old movies, comedians and other events. It is a great place to go in Tucson.

Front 5 rows are too close to enjoy a live performance. Bought row F for a live show in February 2017. Beautifully updated theatre. Friendly staff!

ttended the downtown FOX theater in Tucson for the first time since the rennovation. It's been beautifully done. The theater has the historical panache as many of its fellow rennovated inner city bretheren around the country. The architecture is somewhat stark with the high ceilings and glorious chandleers. Seats are comfortable. It's not a large capacity but it is well... More

Regardless of the show presented (and most have been excellent), the theater is a joy to enter. Art Deco restored to full glory, with great fabrics on the seats, and bright, energetic designs on the walls, ceilings bring you back to the glory days of the theater which was once destined for demolition. Due to the work of many, and... More

We saw a Holiday show there - beautiful theater, well maintained. It has the charm of Era's gone by.
