1. The sound was so loud the words were hard to understand. They needed to just turn it down to make it a nice concert. Then everybody stood up so those seated could not see the concert. Those of us with disabilities at that point could only hear the overdriven music. We left at that point. Groups have to understand... More

The Florida Theater is a really nice place reminiscent of the Fox Theater back home in Detroit. We went to see Comic John Mulaney, we've become a fan of his over the past 6 months. His opener was funny (I forgot his name ) and when he came out Mulaney did not disappoint! The crowd was into it the seats... More

The Florida Theater is a lovely concert venue I used to go to all the time when I lived in Jacksonville. After being away 9 years I arrived back in town for a blues concert (Joe Bonamassa) at this venue. Nothing has changed. It's still as magnificent as it was the last time I was here. I've seen about 20... More

Beautiful building but the seats leave you with little to no leg room. Enjoyed the concert and would definitely go to another at this venue.

We are so lucky to have this venue--it's relatively conveniently located (in the heart of a lot of evolving "action"), absolutely gorgeous and never had a bad seat (obviously some better than others, depending on what's important to you). Most every show I've attended has been excellent as far as acoustics go though last night it seemed to be a... More

I had the pleasure of attending the B-52's concert at Jacksonville's Florida Theater last evening. The building is exquisitely decorated with high ceilings and multiple levels. There is literally not a bad seat in the house! The staff are very friendly and politely escort you to your seat and answer any questions you have. There are an ample supply of... More

We went March 10th the see Three Dog Night. The ushers, especially David, Linda, Steve, and Steve on the Loge level, were great. Also, the man who scanned our ticket in the lobby was very nice and helpful. The artists were great, too. We were so glad to get to see one of my husband's favorite bands. I think the... More
