So glad the Fox Theater was restored. It is a great venue for concerts. If you have a chance to go, please do so. A small, intimate venue-all seats are great and the acoustics are great too. I have not sat in the balcony but want to do so one day-they have love seats for 2. You can go early,... More

We saw the Doo Wop Project, a group of 5 performers with a band of 5. The show had great energy and entertainment value. But the theater was really a wonderful place. There isn't a bad seat in the house. My wife and I sat in the balcony on these love seats (2 persons per seat) that were very comfy... More

Oh - what a night! The thrilling “Taj Express” musical was magnificent - a triumphant testament to the high caliper shows attracted to this historic Fox Theater known as the “Crown Jewel of Tucson”! This lovingly restored theatre really tickles your senses! Outside, with gold lights glittering ostentatiously around an oversized, vertical FOX sign; inside, with ornate, eye-catching southwestern art... More

The Fox is a fabulous venue for just about anything. We have seen many artists there, from Pink Martini to Merle Haggard. The acoustics are great, the seats comfy, and the ambiance -restored 1930s theater - terrific. The performers and the audience all love the Fox. Lots of places nearby for dinner before, or drinks after. Go and Enjoy.

We saw Bollywood in this theater, our first time at the Fox. We sat in the balcony and admired the decor of the theater. Absolutely beautiful.

Built in the 1930 this is a part of the Fox theater chain. The theaters were large, elegant and featured various grandiose themes. Most of the pre-talkie era featured wonderful theater organs and made going to cinema a grand event. This is one of the better preserved and is still used as a performance venue today This is well worth... More

Exquisite historic venue. Go for the cheap movie night or for any of the wonderful events. Highest possible rating. Also, explore Congress Street before or after the show. Lots of cool places for dinner or drinks. Or walk over from Downtown, or Penca, or El Charro or Cocina - all great spots to dine or drink.

I drove down from Phoenix , to see one of my favorite Artist Gunhild Carling playing the Fox theater, it is downtown easy to find and a beautiful venue. I had front row seats , with lots of leg room and being a tall big girl the seats were quite comfortable. The acoustics in the building are amazing being on... More

We enjoyed a a wonderful live jazz and vocal performance at this beautiful old theater. They don't take them like this anymore! Terrific acoustics and remarkably comfortable seats. Be sure to schedule your next AZ visit to include the "Tucson Jazz Festival." Many of the performances are held at the Fox Theater.
