Things To Do
While maintaining a small town atmosphere, Sarasota has a
big city feel with exceptional amenities that include some of the finest museums, art and antique galleries as well as
numerous shops and boutiques. Be prepared to spend a few evenings with our resident ballet, opera house, symphony,
live theatre, comedy clubs and jazz bars.

Are you a movie buff?
Plan your vacation around the
Sarasota Film Festival. This ten day, April event, features over 200 hundred films, more than 250 attending
filmmakers, multiple special events, symposiums, panels and conversations with leaders in the industry. Through the
years honorees have included Alan Alda, Robert Altman, Kevin Bacon, Billy Crystal, Charlize Theron, Liv Ullman, John
Voight, Chevy Chase and many, many more.
Should you miss our April festivities, the Burns Court and Lakewood Ranch Cinema’s offer first-run, hand-picked foreign,
independent, and art films.
Our Regal Hollywood 20 on Main is great for family entertainment and offers free parking when a ticket stub is shown.
Maybe, the kids head to the movies while parents relax at a sidewalk café or stroll the quaint little shops of downtown.
Sarasota Square Mall provides shopping and 12 movie options at their AMC theatre while the Parkway 8 Cinema features
