    Great place to catch a live show or an art house/foreign film in the cinema. Their choice of plays and regular performers are excellent. Centrally located in the heart of Downtown w/ easy bus access.

    The elevator is the oldest of its kind in Florida, still in operation after more than a century and requires a staff member to operate it

    Nary a bad seat in the center section an the sides are very good as well. Go for a Stadium-esque seating heights are plus. End seats center rows C and D look great!

    Here you will find offbeat, wacky and quirky plays on one side of the Theater. The other side offers great foreign,limited-released and avant-garde films.
