“A step back in time”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

I have been privileged to visit this theater often. It is a beautiful restored theater that is home to The Spokane Symphony. It is a wonderful example of Art Nouveau! Whether one is there for an event or a concert, or just visiting; it is well worth a peek.

“A beautiful place to see a stage play or a concert. I have only been there once but it was a great experience .”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The place is beautiful. It is small but this adds to the pleasure of being there. They have done a great job in keeping the original flavor of this theater.

“Experience a Concert at the Martin Woldson Theater at the FOX”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

The acoustics in this gorgeous art deco theater are phenomenal. I heard Tony Bennett perform here. He was so thrilled with the acoustics that he put down his microphone and spoke and sang without it to demonstrate the sound quality. Opera star Thomas Hampson, The Spokane Symphony and Pink Martini are just a few other performers who come to life in the FOX. If you are going to be in Spokane, check your dates to see if there is a performance scheduled at the FOX and give yourself the gift of attending!!

“Just a super neat place to go see anything”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

The last time i was here was for the 'Breaking Bad' final season premiere (including the previous episode). Of course the audience was 110% into the show, and the place was serving beer. Even if you are slightly bored with whatever you went to see, just take some time to check out the decor and architecture. Stunning and way more cool than anything (except the Davenport).
