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.

This is a superbly restored venue for live performances of all types--great seats, wonderful acoustics, not too large. However, the crowds can be downright boorish at performances. A drunk guy dancing down the aisle accidently poked me in the eye at a Cheryl Crow concert. Other performances there have been marred by either drunk or substance impaired audience members who...

The seats were comfortable and even though we were in the balcony in the 2nd tier back, we had a wonderful line of sight... More

This was a movie theatre when I was a little girl. I'm so glad they fixed it up and now have so many different things going on here. Concerts, plays, etc. It's wonderful.

Love this historical restored venue. Great place for concerts and comedy shows. Not a bad seat in the house. One of the few venues in downtown Riverside area. Close to restaurants and hotels.

The Fox Performing Arts Center is a fabulous venue. There is not a bad seat in the house. We saw Hugh Laurie there and DWTS touring show. It was great and the prices are not astronomical. The interior is beautiful. The sound is good and the seating is comfortable with plenty of leg room.

I saw Engelbert Humperdinck here with my grandma last weekend and loved the venue. The employees were very nice and there wasn't a bad seat in the house. We stayed at the Hyatt across the street and were just able to walk right over which was very convenient. Would definitely return.

Their Broadway series is a great way to see quality acts in a close and classy environment. And with so many great eating places within walking distance it is the perfect date night!
