We've seen several concerts at this venue. Love this historic theater!! Great view, no matter where you sit. The staff is genuinely friendly and helpful, as well as entertaining. We take every chance possible to see concerts at the Florida Theater.

I've been to the Florida Theatre several times and always enjoy it. Acoustically it's a great place to see a concert. The building is historic and is cool to explore and admire. The staff is top notch and focused on the guest experience.

This is an easy one to get in and out with out a lot of trouble. No need to be extremely early as they won't let you in that early before show time. 45 to 30 should be plenty of time. They have a bar area if you wanted to... More
