The Peking Acrobats
The Peking Acrobats soar onto stage prepared to astound audiences with gravity-defying stunts and spellbinding aerial antics. Since making their Western debut in 1986, the Chinese-based masters of marvel have helped infuse modern culture with their unique, ancient art form, sweeping across major U.S. television networks and swinging through venues worldwide. A live Chinese orchestra accompanies each gasp-worthy step with whimsical measures while colorfully costumed performers balance atop pencil-thin wires, ride elevated cycles, and contort their bodies into the phone numbers of ex-sweethearts. Elaborate stage props add striking visuals to the unfolding spectacle, backing jugglers and gymnasts with surprising twists throughout the show.
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.
