This is an old, but beautiful theater. I have saw 2 concerts here, and they were awesome. Going back for another concert this month. And it's not but a couple of blocks from the hotel, that we stayed at.

The Florida Theater is a favorite place of mine for live shows. The inside has been restored and is so beautiful. The acoustics are great. There is not a bad seat in the house whether balcony or the main floor. Prices are reasonable for the entertainment there.

A piece of the regal past when building materials were real and not plastic. Excellent acoustics. Have seen several acts here like the Moody Blues, Judy Collins, Ritchie Havens.. If you get a chance go!

We felt truly welcomed at the Florida Theater. What a great Concert Derek & Julianne put on for a crowded audience. Dancing, entertaining, fun and non-stop laughter. An amazing close up to Dancing with The Stars finest. Way to go Florida Theater
