Ghost Tours

Ghost Tours

30th October 2020, 8pm

Every Friday in October, The Fox is excited to have the Tucson Ghost Society take 10 curious (and brave) souls on a safe and educational tour of The Fox that includes a preternatural investigation using state of the art equipment exclusive to the paranormal industry.

Stories about a male panhandler who walks the street outside of the theatre but disappears when someone hands him change…lights that flash on and off when no one is around and the sighting of what appears to be a young girl in old fashioned dress roaming the inside theatre have given The Fox a well-deserved reputation as a place to experience ghostly adventures.

This team has previously captured an apparition on video and has recorded six different electronic voice phenomenons, including footage from the lobby of an orb that drifts out of the wall, rises up into the middle of the room, and moves to the back as it becomes a figure. Since the theatre has been silent with only the Ghost Light shining, we feel sure The Fox ghosts will be glad to have the living back among them.

Tours run twice nightly at 8pm and 11pm each Friday in October. Tickets $25 (11pm $35). Covid-19 protocols are in place for this limited capacity event.
