The Florida Theatre was built in Spanish Eclectic Style in 1927 by R.E. Hall & Co. and Roy A. Benjamin.


The annual Summer Movie Classics Series is returning to the Florida Theatre in June.

This year's theme is anniversaries: from 25 years ago (“Batman” and “Field of Dreams”) to 75 years ago (“The Wizard of Oz”).

From June 29 through Aug. 31, a classic movie will be shown at the historic Florida Theatre in downtown Jacksonville every Sunday at 2 p.m. (See the full schedule below.)

Tickets are $7.50 each but patrons can purchase a Summer Movie Classics Admission Card for $45 that's good for 10 admissions. The card can be used for multiple admissions to any movie or for a single admission to all 10 movies in the series.

Tickets or admission cards can be purchased at the Florida Theatre Box Office at 128 East Forsyth Street, Suite 300, Jacksonville. For more information, go to or call (904) 355-ARTS.
