I guess it's ok for rock concerts, but going to any more sophisticated cultural event there is weird as people get up all the time and come and go get drinks and food, the view from the balcony is impeded by a bright, shiny chandelier that never turns off, and the acoustics are atrocious.

There really isn't a bad seat in the house at this venue. It is decently kept with adequate parking just across the street. The venue should be used more freqently as the acoustics are quite good. Give yourself plenty of time to get to the theater as the traffic in the area can be intense. Also, the food offerings, although... More

Our company hired the Beach Boys to perform a private concert at this venue. We were there for several hours. We used the lobby area for mingling and appetizers. Dinner inside the theater was very good including a sushi bar. The staff was very friendly. The Beach Boys played a great show. The sound and lighting was good. A DJ... More

Thanks to this theater Miamians can watch great Music from all over the world. Valet parking is very good. Something you want in South Beach. The shows, as I mentioned are fantastic. Acoustics are good, seats are generally good.

It took years to develop the right sound system and the shows are great. Take some time to enjoy their concerts and shows. I remember Gleason introducing Miami Beach to the United States from TV Land.

I am fortunate enough to be married to a wonderful French woman and she has taken me to this theater on two occasions and both have been great. Any visit to the Filmore should be a good one. Bruel was charming and the music (in French) was upbeat and fun. Check out their upcoming events, the theater is in the... More

A theater which manages to snag some pretty first rate performers. The tickets are average priced and a municipal lot 2 blocks away make this place convenient.

We saw an Erasure concert advertised so went to the ticket office, it was explained the seats were not numbered but to arrive early. There was a choice of standing at the front near to the bar- saves missing any of the show, great idea! - or sitting- which turned into standing and dancing anyway! This venue is just the... More
