After an extensive renovation that brought it back to its former glory, it re-opened to the public in 2007 as the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. Along with the Spokane Symphony as its anchor tenant, the theater is home to other community arts organizations and hosts business meetings, graduations, weddings, and other special events, along with a varied “Fox Presents” series.
