The Fox Theatre is alive and vibrant in downtown Tucson. The theater , opened in 1930, has been lovingly restored inside and out. This is a beautiful building. Check out foxtucson,com for events.

Old world art deco and big enough but small enough to make every seat good. Many wonderful shows all year long.

First the Fox is a great restored historic downtown theater and worth visiting just to take in the art deco interior with nods to southwestern colors. But if you know that you will be in the Tucson, check out events scheduled at the Fox. There...More
