    The Florida Theatre is a historical venue that opened to the public in 1927. It's one of the best places to go see a show or concert. It evokes memories of a bygone era. Great atmosphere!

    Really pretty venue for a concert but be careful w balcony seats! If the artist goes out into the crowd you can't see anything!

    I attended an event here last December (2014). Beautiful nostalgic venue with architectural details so intriguing that I found myself photographing the interior. Loved it! Very intimate setting..

    Been here many times! Go with mezzanine seating if you can! Or balcony seating above it... sitting on the floor usually doesn't allow much of a view.

    Not a bad seat in the house. There was a sound issue that needs to be addressed.

    The volunteers and staff here are the best. Make sure you show up early/on time for your show to prevent doing the seat shuffle and annoying those around you.

    The historic stage was once home to vaudeville; today it hosts 200 performances annually that range from classical and pop to country and the blues, as well as ballet, opera and lectures.

    Prime seating is in the first four rows of the balcony, called the loge, which still holds the theatre's original gold upholstered seats from 1927.
