Saw the show "RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles" at the Fox and it was a perfect place for this type of show. The venue is gorgeous and the staff is very helpful. Was informed during the show I was at that iconic entertainers like Elvis and Chuck Berry performed at this venue in the 50's, so it's got history... More

The theater is a thing of beauty. It has been so beautifully restored. The chandelier in the center of the ceiling in theater is magnificent. I also really liked the architecture and all of the art Deco finishing touches. Seeing a concert in this theater is such a pleasure.

I think everyone who is able should see a show here. Just for the ambiance of the Fox. It's a great old fashioned relic. We've seen a few plays and concerts here and it's always impressive. Most recently we saw Michael Jackson Live. The venue is small enough that you feel close to all the action and yet its grand... More

I love the Fox theatre! First of all, it is just gorgeous. Also, I like that it's small...we were on the main floor in the very last row and we still had a perfect view. The ushers were all helpful and friendly. Snacks (warm roasted almonds...mmmmm) and beverages are available.

1st visit to the theater - I was given tickets to see Rick Springfield & Richard Marx. This theater is just gorgeous on the inside! Pictures are one thing, but seeing it in person is way better! And while there were many friendly staff, they sure didn't do too much about the obnoxious convert goers on this evening. Instead they... More

Gorgeous - if you love photographing great buildings (like I do), this one is a must. I suggest capturing day and night pics. Also - see a show while you're there 😉

This is a great venue, we had seats toward the back of the main floor and could see and hear Jon Oliver perfectly. The seats are a bit tight if you have a big guy next to you like I did but otherwise comfy enough. The staff is pretty efficient in showing you to your seats. Getting inside took a... More
