The Fabulous Fox Theatre first opened in 1929 as a movie palace in William Fox's motion picture empire. The theatre was reopened in 1982, and today it is one of the most exquisite venues in the country to enjoy live touring Broadway shows, concerts, and comedians. We hope you'll visit us for an upcoming show or one of our guided tours!

They don't call this The Fabulous Fox for nothing. It is truly a remarkable place to see any broadway show, day or night. When you go in the front doors and look up at the beautiful ceiling, you will understand why. My granddaughter, age 4,...More

We last visited the Fox around 30 years ago. As the years have past we are even more appreciative of the building than where then. The facility is 80 years old and still going strong. This week we celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary seeing School...More

I am so glad they saved this Landmark. It is so beautiful inside, and the restoration was done with love. We love to go to shows at the Fox, and recently attended the Ghost tour. It was a lot of fun and I would recommend...More

Beautiful theater but they tend to have the volume so loud that I have to wear earplugs. The first 2 musicals had strobe lights aimed at the audience for many of the numbers. Very painful. We had to look away and couldn't watch the dance...More

This place is always a great venue to visit. The décor is so amazing. Staff is friendly and helpful and with the addition of a new parking garage right around the corner, it is much easier to get in and out of.

We saw 'The King and I' at the Fabulous Fox! It was awesome. Loved all of it. Also, the Fox was decorated so beautiful for Christmas. It's so beautiful all the time but it was nice going during the Christmas season. I definitely recommend seeing...More

My party-of-four sat in the Balcony Row E stage right for Straight No Chaser last month, and we could easily make out the singers' faces from there. But as I said in my review, the Fox offers binoculars for rent if you... More

I think if someone is over 300 pounds, they would be uncomfortable. However, there are areas in the balcony seated at tables and other special seating available that might be a bit more comfortable.
