Los Angeles venues look less and less attractive! We saw "Pippin" this month at the Fox, and thoroughly enjoyed the show, the talent and the seats. The staff was friendly, the parking was easy, and the traffic was not an issue getting there! The season...More

I've seen a couple shows there and its a gorgeous venue. The seat and the curtains make you feel like your in a theater from the 1920's. Seats have a fair amount of space and a good line up of shows there!

Great small venue to see concerts. I saw Josh Turner here and really, no matter where you sit, the view of the stage is great.

Nice venue! Like the cozy atmosphere. Not too big so any seat is fine. Close to the Mission Inn and a variety of restaurants to choose from nearby.

It all depends on what you are going to see. There to watch a rock concert, play etc. I went and saw DAughtry last year and wore casual pants and a nice shirt. Not a t-shirt.

I have no idea. Since it is a live performance theater I would doubt it. The only purpose I could see would be to illegally video the performance.
