The Lazzara Performance Hall
The 1300-seat Lazzara Performance Hall, inside the UNF Fine Arts Center, Jacksonville, FL is named for Gasper and Irene Lazzara, prominent civic leaders who donated $1.25 million to the performance hall’s funding.
The fully-equipped theatre has hi-tech lighting, sound and acoustics—and is the second largest stage in the area. It is the perfect venue for any type of entertainment including sit-down dinners for up to 120 people, lectures, meetings, special events and concerts.
The lobby is equipped with two concession areas, contemporary furnishings, modern lighting accents and an intriguing sculpture installation entitled Aurora. It’s an ideal place for receptions or exhibits and can accommodate 200-300 comfortably for a special evening.
The 700-seat Robinson Theater, adjacent to the Fine Arts Center, features a unique design that can be adapted to seat 400 for smaller events. Renovated in 2007, it is the perfect mid-size venue for performances, lectures or presentations. Equipped with a 35mm film projector, the theater has been home to the Movies on the House film series since January 2011.
