Great place to see a show. The acts vary from music to comedians to plays to movies. If you live in Tucson or are just visiting, check out what's playing and go. Get a bite to eat in the revitalized downtown and go enjoy the show. Smallish venue ...great sound...good seats and most tickets are priced reasonably.

Came to the Fox to hear The Ten Tenors Christmas show. The theater is an old movie theater that was rebuild about 12 years ago. The did a good job. The building retains its historic character but has the ability to present large productions. It has a beautiful, Art Deco with a Southwestern flair interior and new and comfortable seats.... More

I was invited to photograph a fashion show at the Fox Theater. Upon entering, I realized this is an awesome historic property.

We've been to the Fox a few times and always enjoyed it! So it's a Tuesday night,have to work the next morning but the show's at 7:30 so what the heck! So just as it's time to start they announce that there's 2 opening bands so Dwight wouldn't start until about 9:00 and he usually plays for 2 hours! Well... More

We had a great evening at the Fox. The hall is beautifully restored and a real gem. Its western style art deco interior is worth the price of a ticket. If you can find something to see here during your stay in Tucson, you wont be disappointed.

I guess this place got pretty run down, but now is in great shapes for concerts. Good acoustics, fairly spacious seating. Bathroom situation is the downside.

Old School site, downtown Tuscon. Clean. Good Acoustics. Seem to have decent name performers here. Flew in from Pittsburgh to see Boney James in Concert on 11/11/16. EZ parking nearby makes it accessible.

The Fox Theater has a lot of great concerts, artists, and speaks that come through. We saw Jack Hanna and my kids loved it, the stories about his travels and seeing the animals was a big deal for them.

A lovely venue, with magnificent architecture. And dry in rainstorms, unlike the car of someone in management! The disability seating definitely works, and provides for comfort. The only problem is the long walk across the lobby at the end of shows. Definitely chaotic and not too safe when you have a service animal. Box office is very helpful and friendly,... More

Went to see Jackson Browne earlier this month in this beautifully restored theater. It was a one man acoustic show; just the ever earnest and always engaging Jackson with his piano and about 20 of his guitars. We sat on the top row of a packed house and thoroughly enjoyed the show. The give and take between Mr Browne and... More
