The parking was ok, and not a long walk, though not all elevators were functioning. Bizarre configuration of steps and landings. Scarce, difficult to reach restrooms, with only a few stalls each. Lots of lines. And OMG the heat! Nearly everyone in the theater was...More

Took my daughter to see the Orlando Philharmonic at the Bob Carr. All workers at the venue were very pleasant. Enjoyed the music. Seats were comfortable. Also appreciated the ushers held late comers until the piece was over before seating them.

The venue seemed nice and well kept. Parking was easy and close. Inside the theater the seating arrangement is really odd. There are no center aisles, so if you are sitting in the center, you have to go all the way to the side aisles...More

This is a very old facility that needs to be remodeled or replaced. It was designed so many years ago that it is nearly unusable. Seats are sized for persons about 1/2 the size of today's residents. It is a fire hazard from the standpoint...More
