What a surprise this place was on a Food Tour! This is a restored Art Deco Theater now run by a not-for-profit. The lights, seating, flooring, walls and space will take you back in time.

This was our third visit to the Fox Theater to see Lyle Lovett in concert. Beautiful venue, friendly staff and of course an excellent concert.

Lots of shows to pick from, good seats and facilities and parking - with restaurants all around (Senae Thai!!!) Note that the yellow loading zones are free after 6 and the toilets downstairs are less lined at intermission.

The Jazz Festival was going on this week. I didn't recognize many of the names but the spirit and costumes were great. The Theater was nice to see and very busy.
