Great venue for experiencing a live concert or event. It feels like Old Florida, in a glorious way. Parking is a breeze and there are several places nearby to get a bite to eat. Recommended place to bring out of town visitors to share some of Jacksonville's history.

We have gone to many shows at the Florida Theatre. Always a delight. Easy parking, small venue.... not a bad seat in the house! Many great restaurants within walking distance to enjoy before or after a show.

The Florida Theater, is a historic venue in Jacksonville. Because of the size, you won't see the most current, biggest acts. However, you will see a show, in a venue with a feel for the past, in a great way. From the antique tapestries on the walls, to the great sounds, you will enjoy every second.
