Welcome to the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox, Spokane's art deco treasure. Located in the heart of downtown's Davenport Arts District, with restaurants, hotels and shopping within walking distance, this Inland Northwest icon has been the site of unforgettable experiences for thousands since opening in 1931.
Now this historic landmark has been reclaimed as the home for the Spokane Symphony and as a regional performing arts center. Completely restored and boasting outstanding acoustics, the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox hosts a wide variety of performances, including concerts by the Spokane Symphony!
The theater is the only remaining large Art Deco-style theater north of San Francisco.
Food is now being offered at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox with the doors opening an hour and a half before each show. A wide selection of beverages (including cocktails, beer and wine), desserts, and appetizers may be purchased for pre-concert relaxation as well as enjoyment during intermission. In addition, a limited selection of hot entrees are being served at the First Avenue Art Deco Cafe. You may pre-order your favorites before the concert and they will be waiting for you at intermission. No need to wait in line!
Parking around the Theater is convenient and plentiful. The following options are open late on event nights. Click here to view a map.
Reserved parking is being offered in the lot at the corner of Monroe and First Avenue for all Spokane Symphony and Fox Presents Events. Reserved parking is available for $10 per night. This lot will have an attendant on duty to guarantee the reserved parking spaces. Contact the Fox Box Office at 1001 W. Sprague or 509-624-1200 to purchase – the number of available spaces is limited.
You’ll have the best shot at finding a parking spot if you arrive ahead of time.
If you’re attending a Classics Series concert, one hour before each concert the conductor and selected guests present background material on the music and composers to be featured in the concert’s repertoire. The pre-concert talks begin at 7 p.m. on Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays. There is “open seating” for the pre-concert talks.
For these and other concerts, consider arriving early and relaxing in the First Avenue Bistro in the theater’s South Gallery and enjoying a light snack and/or the beverage of your choice before the concert starts.
Meters must be fed Monday through Saturday (excluding holidays) until 7 p.m. in the areas that comprise the Entertainment District. Meters are “free” on Sundays. There are some ten-hour meters along Sprague and First Avenues immediately to the west of the theater, along with some of the side streets, such as Jefferson and Adams. Patrons with handicap parking placards may park in the Entertainment District for up to four hours without feeding a parking meter.
The Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox strives to make its performances and facilities accessible to all of our patrons and performers. The renovated Theater is ADA compliant with the installation of an elevator, new ramps, wheelchair-accessible restrooms on both levels, and wheelchair-accessible dressing rooms. For patrons with limited mobility, consider safe passenger drop-offs and pickups on Monroe Street. For easiest access, enter by the main doors on the north side of the theater along Sprague Avenue.
