Looking for a fabulous venue to see a concert or attend a film festival? We highly recommend the Fox Tucson Theatre, foxtucson.com, located at 17 W. Congress Street, downtown Tucson. The acoustics are excellent. The Art Deco interior is magnificent. You can even rent it for special events.
The Fox Theatre is an important piece of Tucson history. According to its website, the Fox opened in 1930 as a vaudeville theatre and cinema. When it closed in 1974, it fell into a terrible state of disrepair and sat empty for 25 years.
It was purchased in 1999 by the non-profit Fox Tucson Theatre Foundation. Six years and $14 million later, the theatre was restored and once again reigns as a beautiful jewel in Tucson’s crown.
I had the honor of playing my violin there recently in the orchestra pit and I can think of no better place for a musician to play. It is truly a lovely and inspired venue.
