This is a great place to see your favorite performer. It's small and you feel like your part of the band. The seating is comfortable and you can get a beer or wine in the lobby.

The latest management is doing a great job of utilizing this venue for a nice selection entertainment that will appeal to a demographic cross section of Tucson residents and tourists. My wife and I attended a... More

They have a large variety of shows, name entertainers..net net a large variety. The theater is nostalgic and fun to be in. I gave it an average because its a little tough to park, downtown Tucson at night can be intimidating especially if the UA kids are partying or its late getting out. Im not saying its not safe because... More

Our latest trip to Fox Theater was a comedy show with our kids (12, 10 & 2). It was just as much fun to see them enjoy the art deco interior as it was for us when we had been earlier in the year for an adult show. My two year old is in love with the clamshell water fountain.... More

Have seen two fabulous shows at the Fox this summer and looking forward to several more this winter. The inside of the theatre is gorgeous with all of the original decoration beautifully restored.

My then fiance and I attended and thoroughly enjoyed The Hit Men concert. The renovated art deco Fox Theater is a work of art in itself, and the acoustics are great for music events. We look forward to attending more events at the Fox.

Visitors to Tucson and locals alike should not miss this spectacular Southwest, Art Deco gem in the center of Tucson's vibrant new downtown. Superb renovation and faithful refurbishment have restored the glory to this architectural treasure, in whose nostalgic seats many baby-boomer Tucsonons stole their first furtive fumbling kisses in the smoke-filled 1940's. Now a venue for great entertainment and... More
