Nicest of the smaller theaters in the West. As nice as any theater in Seattle or San Francisco... The acoustics are also great. Not a bad seat in the place.

This theatre is by far my favorite in Spokane. It is absolutely gorgeous!! Staff is always so friendly. Watching the symphony perform is a magical experience. My dream wedding venue! So glad Spokane has taken such good care of this gem.

I used to go to the (then) Fox Theatre for movies back in my early days in the 1950s through 1970s. The theatre was fixed up and restored beautifully! The sound was perfect and the seats were great!!

I have attended several symphony concerts as well as other concert events at The Fox. The historic restoration of this beautiful art deco former movie house is absolutely breathtaking. The Spokane Symphony is amazingly good for a city this size.
