The Fabulous Fox Theatre first opened in 1929 as a movie palace in William Fox's motion picture empire. The theatre was reopened in 1982, and today it is one of the most exquisite venues in the country to enjoy live touring Broadway shows, concerts, and comedians. We hope you'll visit us for an upcoming show or one of our guided tours!

I grew up in MO and have spent a lot of time in St. Louis, but I had never been to the Fox. What a beautiful facility! It's in a great neighborhood with lots of restaurants and bars for before/after snacks and drinks. If you get a chance to see a show here, do it - it's a beautiful space.... More

The Fabulous Fox Theatre is a sight to behold. Located just a couple blocks north of St. Louis University, in a recently re-gentrified old neighborhood, the Fox is host to Broadway touring shows, concerts of all kinds, and one of the most beautiful auditoriums in the country.

This is a great place for theater lovers as this is the place for top rated shows. The design inside. My only concern is that the view is not very good for the lest expensive tickets which are typically still expensive. If you can't afford the better seats, bring opera glasses or binoculars prices will help. My favorite spot to... More

You won't be disappointed by your visit to the Fox, no matter what show you are attending. It is magnificent! One of the absolutely best things to do in St. Louis!

This place is very different from theaters in New York City. Its BIG! They get all the good shows . The decor is from the golden age of theater being built in 1929. Good acoustics and many good seats ( my favorite is 1st row mezzenine). Parking lots near by and restaurants.

We went to see the 3rd. to final live performance of "A Prairie Home Companion" with Garrison Keillor and the show was wonderful but the atmosphere of the "Grand Ole' Dame" FOX THEATRE was just beautiful and over whelming. What a wonderful piece of St. Louis History that has been saved for generations to enjoy. About 10 weeks later we... More
