Love the Florida Theater- best place to see a show in Jacksonville! It's basically a giant old gorgeous, historic, movie theater and not a really bad set in the house! The only things at all disappointing about the theater is that there are not enough (ESPECIALLY WOMEN'S) bathrooms, and the venue does not recycle plastic, metal or glass. How is it possible an event like One Spark managed to recycle, and a less than 2000 seat business does not?!?!

The seating in the balcony is very cramped and tight. Otherwise it is a great venue :-)

From Our Editors

When it opened in 1927, the Florida Theatre was the largest of 15 cinemas in downtown Jacksonville. Today, it's the city's last surviving vestige of that era's iconic architecture. Designed by New Yorker R.E. Hall and Jacksonvillian Roy Benjamin, the venue is a prime example of the Mediterranean Revival style, with a ceiling covered in glittering stars and a six-story proscenium arch. And even as the entertainment industry shifted towards television, the Florida Theatre survived by hosting interactive game nights and concerts from underground artists, including Elvis Presley. The space was renovated In the early 1980s, and today it returns to its entertaining roots by hosting live events and classic film screenings.
