We have been going to the Fox Theater for at least 50 years. We have been there for movies and concerts. My son is in Inclusion Film School. This year the Fox Theater is going to preview their second film and my son will be in it and he is also on the lighting crew for the film!

Great show and great people who participated in this cult classic. The staff is always very nice and helpful and the show was full of laughs and good times.

The intimate setting is perfect for concerts and other venues. There are great places to eat before a show and a place for a drink after. The theater is beautiful inside, has a great lobby where you can mix with friends and the location is just about perfect. They have wonderful headliners as well. Fun evening every time.

The concert was very good, The sound quality in the Fox Theater was great. Songs that were performed without a mic sounded clear. The acoustics were show quality.

A fun day spent with kids going through a corn maze, picking a pumpkin, jumping on a pillow! Great for preschool age kids!

Fox Theater is a great place to see big name artists far closer than at larger stadium type venues at a fraction of the cost. You'll be much closer than at regular no club venues in a comfortable seat. Great concert value for big names.

I have attended several events at the Fox. they ranged from fund raisers to concerts. The fund raisers usually included a classic movie. The concerts ran the gambit from country to blues with a few comic shows.

I've been dancing with my 14 year old daughter for 9 years in the annual "father/daughter dance" recitals for a while. I started initially performing at the South High School auditorium for a couple of years but we have been at the Fox Theater for the last 6 or 7 years. It is a very nice facility, both to practice...
