Don McLean

Don McLean performs "American Pie" Live in 2011


  • Best film analogy for Don McLean’s “American Pie”: it’s the Citizen Kane of American folk music
  • Worst film analogy for Don McLean’s “American Pie”: it’s the American Pie of American folk music
  • Length: an epic eight-and-a-half minutes
  • Why it’s been subject to endless analysis: the lyrics center around The Day the Music Died—a.k.a. the day Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and Big Bopper all died in a plane crash—and possibly other historical events that McLean hasn’t confirmed or denied
  • What McLean says the song means: “It means I don’t ever have to work again if I don’t want to”
  • Other hits: his cover of Roy Orbison’s “Crying”; his Van Gogh tribute, simply titled “Vincent”

Florida Theatre

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.
