Copley Symphony Hall (originally the Fox Theatre) in San Diego, California, designed by Weeks and Day, opened in 1929 as the Fox Theatre (a 68,000-square-foot (6,300 m2) Gothic-revival luxury movie theater). The hall was conferred to the San Diego Symphony in 1984. It is also the location of some youth orchestra concerts in San Diego, including the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory.
Downtown's Symphony Towers (the second tallest building in San Diego County) was built around Copley Hall in 1989. The hall features an enormous pipe organ that is built into five walled chambers and was recently restored to its original splendor. The hall has a seating capacity of 2,248. When it opened in 1929, it had a seating capacity of 2,876.
Snake Oil Cocktail Company services the food and beverage concession at the Symphony.
