Walk into the lobby and purchase movie tickets at a price not paid in a long time. All sorts of movies, kids on Saturday, matinees and Sunday classics. This venue also features special events. Walk into the theatre and join the folks getting their hot pretzels, popcorn, beer, wine, soda, water and candy. (very discreetly and quietly) Walk down to... More

I saw my first movie in this very theatre back in 1965. A friend and I sneaked in the alley door, now secured, to see the fourth James Bond film, Thunderball. It was glorious! The ONLY reason I don't give the Polk Theatre five stars is because the Tampa Theatre is a 5 star theatre. The Polk is owned by... More

Even though they only tend to have things on the weekend this is such a fun little place to visit. It is an old theater but the inside is beautiful. Great place for a date night!

Fun downtown theatre with good movies. Wine and beer available. Watch the schedule to find unique films not shown elsewhere.

We have been to several movies that aren't at the regular theaters and also have gone to some concerts there too. It is a great old building that is being used to the fullest.

A mini Radio City Music Hall, full of architectural details from years past, an organ playing as you arrive, comfortable seating, reasonable ticket prices and snacks. It is very, very air-conditioned, particularly in front row seats. Balcony seats offer spectacular view. They offer classic and unique films, make it a priority on your visit to Lakeland!

It's like going back in time. Starting with the live organ music and then entering the theater with the vintage seats and finally ... the balcony! I'm so glad we finally tried this theater! It' s beautiful. Nostalgia lives at the Polk Theater.

I have been coming here since I was a young child...before the renovations. Currently restored to its perfection. This is a classic theater with painted sealing that looks like the sky...a façade of buildings and balconies. Elvis played this theater...it's a hidden gem here in Lakeland. You can catch a movie, play, concert and so on here. Two levels almost... More
