’70s Soul Jam
- The Spinners: flag bearers of the Sweet Philly soul-music scene, Bobbie Smith and Henry Fambrough lead the band in revisiting sounds ranging from the endlessly romantic “I’ll Be Around” to the funky chart topper “The Rubberband Man”
- The Stylistics: the band pumped 10 straight Top 10 hits out of Philadelphia, including “You Make Me Feel Brand New” and “Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)”
- The Main Ingredient with Cuba Gooding Sr.: this R & B group’s massive hit, “Everybody Plays the Fool,” didn’t come out of nowhere—the act had been steadily climbing the charts with songs such as “You’ve Been My Inspiration”
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.
