Since 1928, the Polk Theatre has reigned as the jewel of downtown Lakeland, serving as a premier venue for decades of entertainment and community events. Its elegant Renaissance-era Mediterranean-themed decor provides a perfect setting for concerts, comedy, dance, stage productions, graduations, corporate functions or your own personal special occasion. The Theatre auditorium features 1,400 seats on two levels with incredible acoustics and state-of-the-art sound and lighting. The Theatre is conveniently located within walking distance of downtown hotels, restaurants and businesses. Our competitive rates vary depending upon the day and time of the event, the staging requirements and front-of-house needs. Let our staff help you plan a truly memorable event.
