The Fox Theatre is a beautiful old venue that has been renovated to it's former magnificent grandeur. Sitting in the theatre is a step back in time, and the location in downtown Visalia offers lots of great dining before or after a performance.

Older venue on Main St. Redone. Small theater, has a balcony, refurbished by towns people 'friends of the fox'. Nice job . Good acoustics for older theater. Many restaurants nearby and good parking off Main St

What a cute venue - very historic with old fashioned balconies and style. The beer was sold outside - which is a little weird, but it made the crowd size very manageable. Otherwise, the lobby would have been a disaster.

Went to see a comedian, which we enjoyed greatly. Seating was okay, a little cramped though. Also, people kept getting up and down to go get more booze, quite irritating after awhile.

This Fox theater, as most, is a blast from the past. Seats are well maintained. Good viewing throughout the house.
