The Fillmore at the iconic Jackie Gleason Theatre has such an impressive story it’s iconic and should be designated historic & preserved.
I’m very upset that it’s been on the demolition block for some time and now may face it’s demise!! This is appalling to me!! This is a cherished intimate venue loved by the community and all of South Florida. The biggest names performed here with normal prices!
You can’t replicate or replace history!
A culture that brought so many together live music on Miami Beach.
PLEASE SAVE THE FILLMORE at
JACKIE GLEASON THEATRE.

I had tickets to two of Camilo's shows at this venue a couple weeks ago and I was so thrilled to see my favorite artist at this venue because I saw how cute and small it was from pictures online. While the show itself was incredible, the venue ended up being extremely disappointing. I have been to literally 100's of concerts (big, small, all genres) in my life and I have NEVER been treated so poorly!! The ushers working the event were so unnecessarily rude and aggressively to myself and several others I saw. This particular woman usher was the worst of them all. She literally SHOVED me all the way to my seat even though I did not protest to her direction and was walking on my own. She also forcefully arm blocked me from walking to go to the restroom. She acted as if she was a bouncer at a rowdy night club and I was a rowdy drunk person giving her a hard time. I ended up getting so upset that I cried the whole 2nd half of the show and left early. I had been waiting years to see this concert and drove all the way to Miami and ended up having such a horrible experience. It was not the time and place for that kind of forceful ushering.

In addition to the poor treatment, the venue was so disorganized. The lines to get in went all the way down the street and the orchestra seating was laid out so flat that if you were not very tall, your view would be blocked. The seats I chose for the 2nd show were on the end and were chosen specifically because the Ticketmaster seating chart showed that there wouldn't be seats in front of me. We sit down and they add 3 extra seats to the row in front of us for more people to sit that weren't assigned there. I could hear the people complaining that were actually supposed to be on the end of that row. Also, prior to the show we called the venue to ask if we could bring a small sign and we were told we couldn't bring anything and yet we see multiple people with signs and flags in the venue… It is sad because the place has potential, but is ran so terribly that it's not worth seeing a show there. Spare yourself the disappointment unless you want to be shoved, blocked, and mislead.

We visited this venue for a concert and we picked our seats to be first row balcony. The view and sound were exceptional. The folks around us seem to want to be comfortable, quiet and respectful. I would not have wanted to be sitting in floor seats or general admission. I suggest getting there early to take a trip down the historical pictures and Art Deco restoration. There are not many places like this anymore.

Not a bad seat in the house. Because I am short, I actually prefer the seat as opposed the the floor option.

A good place to see shows. A bit dated to our taste. It is about time to remodel since all the other venues looks more modern.

Great venue to see a band. Staff were attentive and helpful for questions. Drink process were steep but selection was good. Stood in the put near the stage. Really close to the show.

New Order put on a fantastic series of show, I saw Friday and Saturday night, the acoustics were good but Bernard's voice was too low when he was talking, we couldn't hear his banter. I enjoyed the shows despite The Fillmore's issues. The stage is very low and you can’t see the performers from the floor, I am 5’9” and could not even see Bernard’s head without looking through my phone screen held in the air. Even in the raised seating area, you only see upper bodies of the band. Check in security was standard and safe, metal detector and bag check, organized and efficient. This is the last time I saw an employee of the venue. They have no seat ushers so everyone rushed to the front of general admission standing and the conditions were very crowded and unsafe. A few security guards who worked for a consultant not the theatre asked people to move. I said to where? I have a ticket, where can I see the show from? At least 3 guards shrugged their heads and said I don’t know. All of the seats were full by the time the show started. We heard a guard say the show was oversold. One of the guards repeatedly grabbed my shoulder and pushed me, I saw numerous other people being grabbed and pushed as well. We were told to stand on the stairs, then 10 minutes later interrupted and said no we couldn’t stand on the stairs by a different guard. There were over 100 people in this area and 1 guard would show up to move people. This is not how you handle a crowd. There was not one seat usher helping people to areas or seats. On the second night we found seats but there was still no one to help us. I asked at the front where they scanned our tickets where I could sit or stand, they said go to the left or right – only directing us to the main entrance to the theater which was hundreds of feet away. I have been to concerts for 30+ years and have never seen this lack of ushers and over zealous security. The crowds of people that were allowed to gather in stairs and egress areas would have caused the venue to shut down in New York or other cities. The Fillmore staff needs to attend concerts at other venues to learn proper procedures.

Incredible time. Great sound and awesome venue. Drinks are a bit pricy, but that is to be expected in South Beach or any other concert venue.

I would go listen to nuns pray at the Fillmore. It's a privilege to see a show there. How about New Order, Iggy Pop, Pet Shop Boys? How about amazing chandeliers? Lots of them.

Over the years I have seen many Nutcracker performances on stage and I’ve even watched it on TV. (Like many others, I love the Nutcracker and look forward to either seeing it or reading the Nutcracker book every December). I’ve long wanted to attend Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker and finally did last week at the Jackie Gleason Theater, Miami Beach. This production is a departure from the standard version and has an innocence that is reminiscent of a version that I saw in my much earlier years. Children will warm to this production which has humor sprinkled throughout, is colorful and surprisingly acrobatic. It is fun, joyous and captivating. The couple who perform the Dove of Peace and Arabian Variation duets caught my attention in particular and deserve a shout out as they were truly spectacular: Elena Petrichenko and Sergey Chumakov. Their performances in these roles make this production worth seeing alone. I enjoyed this delightful performance and had terrific seats thanks to the advice and assistance of the lovely ticket agent in the Box Office. Throughout this performance the audience can feel the enthusiasm of the dancers and the joy that they have in performing this much beloved ballet.
