Not Your Ordinary Date Night

Fall in love with “America’s Southernmost Art Colony.” Tour the bountiful art galleries, catch a live production at the Waterfront Playhouse at Mallory Square or see a visiting legend at the Tennessee Williams Theatre, a world-class performing arts center. Even a night at the movies can be truly unique. We suggest taking your sweetheart to see an independent film at the vintage Tropic Cinema, a non-profit theatre run by volunteers.
