Polk Theatre Lakeland Phone Number
In 1982, a group of concerned citizens banded together to save the Polk. They formed a non-profit group, borrowed money, secured a grant from the state, and purchased the theatre for $300,000. As a non-profit, the Polk continues to rely upon grants and donations in order to meet its financial obligations.
Major restoration of the building was completed in October, 1999, but as with any historic property it continues to need work.
The Theatre is supported by revenue from films, its Performing Arts Series, two fund raisers a year, rental income, and memberships.
