Small classic theater with a lot of history

As others have said, I also went to the Fox to see Dirty Dancing. I was disappointed in the show, but it all began with the fact that our seats, about 17 or so rows from the stage were so flat and not staggered that we could not see over the heads in front of us. We basically saw the... More

I saw Dirty Dancing at the beautiful Fox Theater this past weekend. I could not believe my eyes to see hot dogs, popcorn, pop, etc. being sold there and eaten in the auditorium. It made me feel like I was at a ball game. Going to the theater used to be classy. Especially disappointed to allow this in such a... More

I love theater, but was so disappointed at the play Dirty Dancing, I may not go back. By the way the play was fantastic. They now sell food to eat during performances. I was there early and in my seat. People were coming in 30 minutes late with their food. Even worse, cell phones were in use during the performance.... More

I love the Fox and the show Dirty Dancing was amazing!! What is not amazing is allowing people to be seated 20-30 minutes after the show begins. It is absolutely ridiculous - If you need to have more security on the doors to get people in faster to help avoid delays then do so or if you need to advise... More

Saw the show "RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles" at the Fox and it was a perfect place for this type of show. The venue is gorgeous and the staff is very helpful. Was informed during the show I was at that iconic entertainers like Elvis and Chuck Berry performed at this venue in the 50's, so it's got history... More

The theater is a thing of beauty. It has been so beautifully restored. The chandelier in the center of the ceiling in theater is magnificent. I also really liked the architecture and all of the art Deco finishing touches. Seeing a concert in this theater is such a pleasure.

I think everyone who is able should see a show here. Just for the ambiance of the Fox. It's a great old fashioned relic. We've seen a few plays and concerts here and it's always impressive. Most recently we saw Michael Jackson Live. The venue is small enough that you feel close to all the action and yet its grand... More

I love the Fox theatre! First of all, it is just gorgeous. Also, I like that it's small...we were on the main floor in the very last row and we still had a perfect view. The ushers were all helpful and friendly. Snacks (warm roasted almonds...mmmmm) and beverages are available.

1st visit to the theater - I was given tickets to see Rick Springfield & Richard Marx. This theater is just gorgeous on the inside! Pictures are one thing, but seeing it in person is way better! And while there were many friendly staff, they sure didn't do too much about the obnoxious convert goers on this evening. Instead they... More
