The Polk Theatre is a 1400 seat atmospheric theater located at 121 South Florida Avenue and is a popular historic landmark in downtown Lakeland, Florida.
Originally established as a movie house in 1928, the Polk Theatre now presents films and live entertainment as a non-profit organization, dedicated to preserving the building's architecture and cinematic history.
The Theatre is supported by revenue from films, its Performing Arts Series, two fundraisers a year, rental income, and memberships.
You don't have to be an actor or musician to step up onto our legendary stage, but all those who do are guaranteed to be a star for the night, and renting the Polk Theatre is more affordable than you might think.
Weddings, private parties, screenings, corporate functions, film, photography and more.
