We were there for a graduation of Nurses. The place was pretty nice inside and that is all I can say.

My husband and I attended a concert for the "Australian BeeGees" on Feb 28th and it was our first visit to the Florida Theater. The vintage theater was a really cool venue- restored to original glory! However a couple of things to be aware of- luckily I bought tickets at the theater ahead of time and was able to get... More

What a magnificent piece of history in this building. It has been a landmark in Jacksonville for many years and the architecture is beyond belief. The interior is beautiful and the venue is perfect for concerts, dances, plays, shows, recitals, and entertainment in general. The seats are spaced perfectly and very comfortable. The Florida Theatre will not disappoint!

My husband & I have enjoyed many musical concerts at The Florida Theatre. This theatre is such an incredibly beautiful (an understatement), historic, cozy venue. We so love experiencing concerts here, instead of our larger arena. You get a much more personal experience than in a larger venue. It's a calmer, more peaceful atmosphere than an arena, which we rather... More

I've gone to two events in the past couple months and I had a great time at both. I sat to the left of the stage at one event and then I set up in the balcony at the other , both seats were terrific. I saw a concert and a comedian, the sound was great, and like I said... More

It was a bit warm inside the theatre with as many people that were packed in for the Kathy Griffin show, but a great time was had. Kathy was hilarious and the crowd seemed to really enjoy her. The theatre is beautifil inside and the staff were very courteous. Every seat seemed to be a great seat. Very diverse crowd... More

Love this venue and acoustically it's incredible. Only negative would be the balcony, so try to get seating in the orchestra. The balcony is steep and I never enjoy it from there. Not much food selection, but there are great bars and restaurants downtown in the area.
