About the Florida Theatre
Opened as the 800-seat Florida Theatre in 1924. The theatre current plan is for 550 seats. The architect for the Florida Theatre was F.H. Trimble. It is a two story flat roofed building with parapet and walls finished in white stucco.
This was the second movie theatre to grace the streets of Vero Beach. It is also one of the few remaining buildings left in the original downtown.
The theater, in need of major renovations, has not operated since 1985. It hasn’t been open to the public, except for a rare tour, since 1990, when historical preservationist Bob Brackett bought and renovated the rest of the building into apartments and retail space.
The theater will feature regional and national touring shows, musical and comedy acts, as well as local talent, community groups, concerts, movies and corporate events.
