This is a great venue for every show we have gone to here. Completely refurbished to it's original granduer, it is just beautiful inside. The theatre is small so it's always a more personal experience. We have seen 50's big band music to last night's Led Zeppelin's tribute and have enjoyed it every time.

This is a beautifully restored theatre in the heart of downtown Spokane. The Art deco styling is spectacular and makes attending any show here that much more special.

When I saw photos of this restored Art Deco theatre on line I knew I had to visit. What a treat to hear the Spokane Symphony perform "The Russian Soul" there. Nice smallish theatre, a block walk from the Davenport, drinks and food available before performance and during intermission. Only drawback is the loooong line for the bathrooms.

We went to a Spokane Symphony concert this month at Martin Woldson. It was our first time there and there will be many more! Beautiful art deco theater with the most amazing acoustics. This is a gem in Spokane. Parking options are plenty.

We are lucky in Spokane with our symphony and a beautiful venue. The Martin Woldson Theater @ the Fox is vintage art deco. The symphony was great with a guest cello player.

What a wonderful venue which takes you back in time to the 1920's and 30's. The lobby is small but the stairway to the balcony area is grand. The large stage framed in a grandiose fashion. The seats are comfortable and the staff very helpful. A great place to experience a stage production.

The FOX theatre is a beautiful, historic hall. It is gratifying to see a "movie theatre" that has been around for a century preserved and enjoyed by generations. Spokane is a city that has been mindful of its past and has much to offer tourists as a result. Like the ornate Davenport Hotel and the amazing carousel, the FOX is... More
