Fabulous place to see a show or concert. The historical ambiance is quite beautiful. The acoustics are great and the stage and seating area have intimate feeling. The staff are quite friendly, the web site is easy to manage and find your seat placement too. Have a nice dinner downtown and then take in a show its a great night... More

My husband and I visited the Fox Theater on two separate occasions, and enjoyed both productions we saw there, as well as the atmosphere in the theater. The interior restoration is beautiful! The Fox also offers good variety in what they offer to the viewing audience.

We go to the Fox theater every year to see our favorite Christmas movie. The carvings into the wall and ceiling are amazing. The seats are comfortable. It is by far my favorite theater.

It was my first time at the theatre and it was comfortable. The show was great and hearing a lot of the hits from the past brought back good memories.

Love the Fox Theater with its excellent acoustics, sight lines and intimacy. Perfect for a show like the popular Drew Carey produced television improv show (running off and on network for nearly 20 years) done live in front of a sold out audience of cheering/participating fans. Ryan Stiles, the "star" of the show brought the house down on several occasions... More

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
