Venue Ejection Policy

The Florida Theatre reserves the right to eject any person if it can be reasonably determined that the person is disruptive, or might cause harm to himself/herself or others or damage to the venue. Our security staff will make such determination.

Disruptive behavior is defined as, but not limited to, the following:

  • Offensive, profane or threatening language to others
  • Public drunkenness
  • Fighting or threatening to fight
  • Throwing objects, standing on chairs, or any other behavior deemed by Florida Theatre personnel as disruptive or dangerous in nature will be subject to ejection.

The person will first be observed or reported (by another patron, an usher, security or staff).

The person is then warned by security or management.

If the problem continues, the person is ejected.


Audio, Video and Photo Policy

It is the policy of the Florida Theatre that audio, video and photographic recording is permitted at most performances, as long as it is for personal use and not for commercial gain, and the recording is made using personal electronic equipment, such as a smart phone or a small personal camera, and the recording is made discreetly from your seat. Flash photography is never permitted. It is distracting and often dangerous to the performers. Professional gear, such as but not limited to photographic equipment with detachable lenses, video equipment with a stand or tripod, and audio equipment with a detached microphone is not permitted. Persons making audio, video or photographic records of a performance whose activities disturb the enjoyment of the performance by other audience members may be asked to cease such activities or be subject to ejection. The theatre shall be the sole arbiter of what equipment and activities are permissible and not permissible under this policy, and the theatre reserves the right to amend this policy at any time, for any performance, for any reason, including a complete prohibition of such activities.
