“Louge Seating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The Theatre is beautiful. We attended concerts on Saturday and Sunday night. The Louge section was excellent for viewing the stage.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

This old theater has been remodeled and is just gorgeous. Several very good shows year round. I've several time and it's very pleasant. 2 large (and many more)public parking very close by (Usually $5 for all evening), or you can park free on streets nearby.

“Never Again!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

I have been here on several occasions with no problem. I've never been a big fan.
The Florida Theatre Has Very Bad Lighting and Very Bad Dark Decor! Yes it's old, but it's also 2013 now! Enough Already!
But Friday Night Was A Nightmare!!! If you are Claustrophobic...., RUN! Lewis Black show 4/18/2013.
NO A/C, No Announcement of NO A/C, No Industrial Fans brought in to at least move some air around..., Nothing!
And apparently their must have been a lot of VIP's in the Theatre,
because they had to be Texting on Bright Lighted iPhones the Whole Time!
Never Again For Me!
With Respect to The Florida Theatre Management they did try to make things right!
Hubbs and I were soaked in sweat and I was so angry I refused!
Just wanted to get back to our room at the Hyatt turn up the A/C and Shower!!!!

“Awesome place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I have been there 3 times in the last 3 months for concerts and there is not a bad seat. Sound is great and you become closer and intimate with the performances.
