I've been going to this Downtown theatre since it reopened in 2006 after being closed for 32 years. It took a community-wide effort to restore the dilapidated building to its 1930 look. As an architecture buff, I especially like the Southwestern Art Deco ambiance, which...More

I went to see Lila Downs at Fox Theater and the way the music is enhanced by the place is just amazing. I loved the music and I have been there before to see George and the destroyers. I will continue to attend venues there.
