Wonderful venue. My only gripe is about the muggy balcony.

I completely agree with what others had written about this venue. It's a historic landmark with a touch of class. I've seen several concerts and throwback movies here and I'm... read more

I completely agree with what others had written about this venue. It's a historic landmark with a touch of class. I've seen several concerts and throwback movies here and I'm always pleased because of the sightlines and unobstructed view. However, my only gripe is about the AC. More often than not, we end up sweaty up there, it's almost like... More

I have been to the Fox for several events. Whenever I enter, I feel like I'm stepping back in time. The grand days of going to the theater. The seats are plush and easy to relax in. I always look forward to a presentation at the Fox Theater.

This was a special stop on our ladies group tour of Visalia. We were probably treated to a little added attraction. We had a historian who gave us the history of the building as well as pointing out the various alterations the building had gone through prior to its restoration. The restoration is still continuing, however, it provided an excellent... More

Great place for concerts. It is a smaller venue, I don't' think there is a bad seat in the house. An old theater that has been restored to how I remember it as a young kid.

I have been to two concerts and three movies. This place is very old, but very clean and the chairs are rockers. The box office is awesome as i needed special tickets(handicapped) which were not identifiable on their seating chart. I left a message and before noon the next day I had seats on the aisle. This theater's old style... More

This is a great building in Visalia, drive downtown and drive right by The Fox. Its what you think of when you think of a old movie Theatre. Its part of the history of Visalia and still is a great Theatre.

Tastefully restored theater from years gone by. Fun place to go for comedy shows and an occasional big name concert. If you get a chance to see a show here don't hesitate, they often have a beer garden outside and there are plenty great restaurants near by.

Nice venue, intimate and yet large enough for a great concert. Parking is a bit of a hassle as there is no parking garage nearby but it is a nice part of town with lots of restaurants (recommend Crawdaddy's if you have lots of time before going to the Fox Theatre). Decent show selection and would like to see more... More

This theater is a gem in Visalia. We have gone to Symphonies, comedy shows and concerts. Last concert we went to was REO Speedwagon. Excellent seating! It's an old theater but kept up in top shape by the city. It gives downtown Visalia a special touch.
