This is a beautifully refurbished theater that seats at least 500. We had gone to see Brandford Marsalis, and not only was it a great performance, but from the theater the acoustics were amazing. Bravo.

This theater has authentic décor to a time back in history. It has balcony seating and the old fashion western feel of how theaters probably looked back in the western days. We have gone to several fundraising performances there and they also bring concerts and show old movies there.

A Tucson Treasure! Renovated art deco theater that has been around forever. Luckily a group of Tucsoians fought to save it & created a renovated gem!

Worth a look-see. It's authentic and completely renovated to the retro era of the 1920's -1940's (more or less)?

Great place to see a show. The acts vary from music to comedians to plays to movies. If you live in Tucson or are just visiting, check out what's playing and go. Get a bite to eat in the revitalized downtown and go enjoy the show. Smallish venue ...great sound...good seats and most tickets are priced reasonably.

Came to the Fox to hear The Ten Tenors Christmas show. The theater is an old movie theater that was rebuild about 12 years ago. The did a good job. The building retains its historic character but has the ability to present large productions. It has a beautiful, Art Deco with a Southwestern flair interior and new and comfortable seats.... More

I was invited to photograph a fashion show at the Fox Theater. Upon entering, I realized this is an awesome historic property.

We've been to the Fox a few times and always enjoyed it! So it's a Tuesday night,have to work the next morning but the show's at 7:30 so what the heck! So just as it's time to start they announce that there's 2 opening bands so Dwight wouldn't start until about 9:00 and he usually plays for 2 hours! Well... More
