Inspiration & Tips

We all know The Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox is one of downtown Spokane's most iconic and historic buildings, but did you also know it makes a perfect wedding venue?! This Art Deco inspired building can host weddings of all sizes in some of the most gorgeous surroundings this city has to offer. Your ceremony can be held on the same stage Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby performed (along with a million other famous faces) and your reception can be held in the stunning lobby. The whole theater is yours for the taking! Here is an interview to learn more.

What type of wedding does your venue work best for?

Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox is the ideal wedding venue for couples who want to wow their guests with glamorous surroundings and luxurious spaces. Family and friends will be surprised and delighted by every transition.  Watch guests marvel as they move from drinks and mingling in our swanky lobby, to being ushered into our jaw-dropping theater for the ceremony itself, and then on to enjoy a seated dinner in our Founders' Gallery, surrounded by historic Art Deco style. Finally, you can cut loose and dance away under our stunning starburst ceiling as your revelers enjoy a unique experience filled with unforgettable fun and fabulousness.

Do you have a ceremony location?

While you can choose any of our architecturally striking spaces, most couples prefer to take the stage of our breathtaking auditorium.  Guests' jaws will drop as they gaze at our trademark sunburst and soaring murals, coupled with the kind of mood lighting only a state-of-the-art theater can produce.
