  • 3. Florida Theatre


    One of the last remaining movie palaces of the 1920s—and listed on the National Register of Historic Places—this theater was totally restored in the 1980s to preserve its Spanish-style courtyard, grand balconies, ornate and colorful proscenium arch, and coffered ceiling. The theater was designed by New York City's R.E. Hall, who was responsible for building dozens of these now rare extravaganzas across the country. Today, the theater, which has seen hundreds of luminaries—from Elvis Presley to Elvis Costello—perform on its stage, hosts concerts, dance productions, and special events, as well as a classic-movie series each summer.
