The focus of a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2007, the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater (1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) is a state-of-the-art performance space that occupies an iconic spot in South Florida’s entertainment history. The Gleason reference, of course, is to the legendary comedian, who moved his television show to the original theater in 1964 and helped put Miami Beach on the cultural map. Nowadays, the theater hosts an array of events from theater to classical an pop concerts

Circa Survive played there this past weekend, and out of the eleven times I have seen this band, seeing them at the Fillmore was by far the worst experience. The seating and standing situation at the Fillmore is always confusing. It was especially true this time around with no wristbands to determine who was in front. It seemed security would let people in between the different sections based on no merit, simply when they were feeling nice. I was confused as to the seating/standing situation while purchasing my ticket, and I called twice during the week before purchasing my ticket to confirm the situation. Neither time did the Fillmore pick up during their business hours. What garbage customer service. Getting to the venue, I paid the equivalent of another ticket on drinks. I know Miami is expensive, but the prices for alcohol were particularly unreal at this venue. Overall bad experience, and I have already contacted Circa Survive and told them they should keep performing in Ft Lauderdale if they can not find a more suitable venue than the Fillmore in Miami, because that place is straight trash. If you can see any performance at another venue in South Florida, save your self the headache and go there instead of the Fillmore. I'm going to make every effort to never attend this venue again. These people don't know what they're doing. Jackie Gleason is turning in his grave.

I went to a concert tonight and they wouldn't let anyone in the first level by the stage even though there was plenty of room and I got there before the show started. I talked to one of the security guards and he told me that the first level is for general admission, which I purchased. I just don't understand why they at least can give out wrist bands to identify who goes in and out of the first level. They need to do this fair and properly because there was people that got in to the first level and the security guard would just say "yea I remember you." How do you remember 100 faces in a couple of minutes? Ridiculous.

Seating was good in the second pit even though we could’ve gotten the first pit but they only allowed 100 people into the pit when they clearly had more space. Many members of security were unhelpful and rude although there were a few helpful ones. This venue would be a lot better for concerts that aren’t general admission. The concert itself was great and after we got our “seats” (we were standing) the sound and visuals of the concert were great!

Amazing venue for much more than concerts! They're are bars throughout the 3 floors of the venue and even often inside. The interior decor updates and finishes are welcoming and artistic!

I go every time with my husband whenever a spanish rock band is in town. The atmosphere is great, safe and it never fails, there is always an after party. If you enjoy a different crowd, this is the place.
