We have seen several events at the Fox Theater. The theater is beautiful. Parking lot is right next to theater.

Wonderful theater to enjoy your favorite entertainers. The only thing is that the lobby is not large enough to handle lots of folks and for someone that Is handicapped there are not enough setting areas. Otherwise a very nice theater to enjoy your entailments.

Have attended concerts here twice. Easy to find and close to hotels as I live out of town. Parking can be tricky, but well worth the trip.

We sat in the front row to the side for the Ambrosia concert. The sound is somewhat distorted due to the size of the small theatre. The people working there said that for the best sound quality to sit towards the back.
