“Beautiful as long as you don't need a restroom”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Went to Detroit fox theater to see comedian Dane Cook. Had a great experience overall. Inside the building itself is beautiful. For 85 years old, Fox Theater looks fabulous. My only complaints would be that signage is seriously lacking. If you weren't right by where you needed to be, you had to ask for directions. Also the restrooms were on opposite ends of each floor. All in all, Fox Theater has beautiful architecture that somehow isn't distracting from the feature you go tosee.

“Lovingly restored”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

The Fox is one of Detroit's true gems... even the elevators are elegant! Look around, look up.. the stage performance is definitely not the only attraction in this wonderful setting.

Vintage theatre restored to it's grand old days. Across the street from Comerica park, Great location with lots of parking and restaurants nearby. Try to go to a show here---you will not forget your experience in a beautiful old style theatre.

“Gorgeous Venue”

I love going to the Fox for concerts and shows. It is a pretty venue very historic with great acoustics. We saw a Tyler Perry Play and we are going to Dane Cook this fall.

“BEAUTIFUL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great place for any kind of venue. It is absolutely beautiful. It is in a good location, walking distance to Campus Marchius. I would personally walk to the Hart Plaza (river front) or Greektown from here. Although it is quite a walk. Comerica Park is right across the street.
