  • This building is stunning. It has been lovingly maintained and has all the features of an old-time theater. Saw an Elvis show here in January and it was very well done. We will be back!

  • This intimate historic theater seats less than 2000 people and is great to see a concert. Seats are comfortable and sight lines and acoustics are excellent.

  • So every year my organization (Community Nutcracker) puts on a show at this incredible, historical and lovely venue. We take over the theatre for 6 days and produce 6 shows… I have the privilege of working with some awesome folks.. and let me tell you this year was just amazing. As a 501c non profit we have so many intricacies and needs that may go beyond normal. We produce two school shows, a community service night and 3 public shows. Our feature charity is Dreams Come True, who grants children with life threatening diseases their dream trips. So you can imagine how many small details are required for each performance. From set up and load in on Monday to the final performance on Saturday night to load out and clean up these guys and gals know what they are doing. 6 shows and we never miss a beat. Backstage handles our props, our backdrops, our show calling and scripts and our dancers and volunteers. Front of house has me in awe as they shuffle through thousands of patrons excited to visit and kick off the holiday season. Ticketing and the box office allow us to conduct our business and take care of our clients with ease and professionalism (and are the sweetest too!). I cannot thank them enough for helping us to make our production week the best and most enjoyable week of the year. BRAVO Florida Theatre.. you may and should take a BOW!!!!
  • We went to see Pink Martini on Wed 01/19/22 and it was one of the best concerts I've ever been to! The theater is absolutely stunning and anywhere you sit still would be a good spot to see the stage. Loved the architecture of the building and across the street has this beautiful lit up art
  • What a Beautiful Theater! My first time visiting was 10/22/2022 to see Josh Gates... Absolutely Loved his Show! I bought my tickets last minute and I didn't know what to expect... I don't think there is a Bad Seat in the Theater. I love the smaller venue & I look forward to coming back to see another concert.
  • Just went there the other night for an Eagles cover band. Band was good until the end when they went from an Eagles cover band to a Journey cover band and then a gospel revival.....what the???? The venue is cool and seems like every seat is good. Acoustics are great too and the band sounded good. Bar line was horribly slow. Only 2 bartenders and they were in no hurry. Bar also shuts down early so pregame hard if you go. Probably the main thing I didn't like is no one stood up and boogied and really got into the music. It was like watching a concert at a nursing home.
  • Went to see the community Nutcracker performance. It was fabulous. Definitely suggest seeing it one year if you've never been. I always like the Florida Theatre, it's old and cozy feeling and the architecture is interesting. Glad it's still around to enjoy.
