Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
There’s something for everyone at this beautiful, state-of-the-art venue –– from the Orlando Ballet to Broadway musicals to the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra.
Pro tip: Tickets for events at the Dr. Phillips Center typically go on sale two to three months before the performance date.
Prefer film to live theater? Visit the Enzian, an independent movie theater located just 15 minutes from Orlando’s city center. This arthouse venue hosts the Florida Film Festival, as well as several other local film festivals throughout the year.
Pro tip: Enzian partners with the City of Winter Park to show “Popcorn Flicks in the Park,” a completely free cinema series held in Central Park on the second Thursday of each month. Pack a picnic and bring the kiddos, because there’s always a family-friendly film on screen.
SAK Comedy Lab
Located in Downtown Orlando, this quirky club is a local gem. Every show features live improv performances delivered by a cast of comedians –– and inspired by story ideas provided by the audience (much like the TV show, “Whose Line is it Anyway?”). Stop by for a show and settle in for some high-energy, laugh-out-loud fun.
