I guess this place got pretty run down, but now is in great shapes for concerts. Good acoustics, fairly spacious seating. Bathroom situation is the downside.

Old School site, downtown Tuscon. Clean. Good Acoustics. Seem to have decent name performers here. Flew in from Pittsburgh to see Boney James in Concert on 11/11/16. EZ parking nearby makes it accessible.

The Fox Theater has a lot of great concerts, artists, and speaks that come through. We saw Jack Hanna and my kids loved it, the stories about his travels and seeing the animals was a big deal for them.

A lovely venue, with magnificent architecture. And dry in rainstorms, unlike the car of someone in management! The disability seating definitely works, and provides for comfort. The only problem is the long walk across the lobby at the end of shows. Definitely chaotic and not too safe when you have a service animal. Box office is very helpful and friendly,... More

Went to see Jackson Browne earlier this month in this beautifully restored theater. It was a one man acoustic show; just the ever earnest and always engaging Jackson with his piano and about 20 of his guitars. We sat on the top row of a packed house and thoroughly enjoyed the show. The give and take between Mr Browne and... More

Historic movie theatre that has been restored. Plays, entertainers, even old classic movies. An intimate setting. A Tucson experience.

Enjoyed performance of Swan Lake Ballet. Seating spacious, theater beautifully remodeled. Stage was small for a professional ballet company so we couldn't see the dancers' true power and ability. They did an excellent job of choreography and stage scenes to meet the needs of the small stage.

Have attended several concerts at the Fox -- most recently on Saturday night. Intimate setting with no bad seats. Awesome acoustics. Also shows classic movies on the large screen. Love seats in the balcony. The Fox is an architectural gem. It has been fully restored to its Art Deco glory. Absolutely beautiful!!!!

Went to the Mary Chapin Carpenter concert. Fantastic show. The theater is beautiful although we sat in row X could see and hear everything. A real part of history everyone should go.
