Happy Birthday to The Florida Theatre, celebrating the big 9-0 this year! On April, 8, 1927, the theater opened on Forsyth Street—since then, it’s witnessed everything from classic films and Elvis Presley to Dave Chappelle, John Waters and Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks! If those walls could talk … in celebration of its nonagenarian status as a Southeast jewel of entertainment, the folks at the historic venue are presenting a free screening of the 1928 Buster Keaton film, Steamboat Bill Jr. Did we mention free birthday cake?!
7 p.m. Saturday, April 8, The Florida Theatre, Downtown, floridatheatre.com.
