“Nice Old Theater”

The Florida Theatre
Ranked #7 of 146 things to do in Jacksonville
Certificate of Excellence

Reviewed 24 February 2018

First time visit: The Florida Theater is deceiving from the outside - I was impressed with the interior ceiling architecture and lighting. The seating and acoustics are good, though the seats are dated. Overall, a good location for enjoying music or plays.

A personal security check with wands is conducted before entering the theater at two locations - plan on arriving a few minutes early; the side entrance was faster.

Myself and some friends enjoyed watching Jamey Johnson perform last night. This my first trip to The Florida Theatre it will not be my last. Only downfall for me is I’m a big man and the seats are not plus size friendly. Service was great & very friendly they had a great selection of liquor so that made me extra happy. Overall it was great if you in town I suggest stopping in to see a show.

Great view and sound even from back of orchestra level. The only drawback being far back is that a lot of people in Jacksonville seem to go to a concert more for the bar and restrooms than the concert, so people walking around and coming in and out can be a real distraction. For that reason, after comparing the difference in various concerts we've attended here, I highly recommend sitting as near the front as possible. The theater itself needs a little maintenance but overall is very pretty and elegant.

This is a awesome venue for the Broadway Series shows. Just saw Lion King on Friday night and it was Great. Theater just right for floor interaction with the characters.
Not a bad seat in the house and sound is very good too.

Concerts that utilize this facility are very good too!

We are friends of the Florida Theatre and attend as many concerts as possible. Great seating, great acoustics and friendly staff. You will de searched so leave your shooting irons and knives in your vehicle. Good parking too. For 10 dollars. Kansas rocked the house for over two hours. I thought I was back in high school.
