Travel Tips for Mount Dora
The whole town is 'OFF THE...
The whole town is 'OFF THE BEATEN PATH' as far as I'm concerned. The pace here is very slow. I wouldn't recommend it for young people or those looking for excitement and night life. However, it is enjoyable spending a few hours here to unwind and experience the 'Old Florida'.
Old Princess Theater
Princess Gallery Theatre
This was built in 1922 as a movie theater.
The ticket office here was level with the sidewalk, and on either side were shops, a quick-lunch on one side and a music store on the other.
In the late 1920s, the projector caught fire in the middle of the night and burned out the shops and theater front. While repairs were being made, a temporary open-air theater was set up in back of the present Wingler Building, with a screen on its north wall.
The Princess was rebuilt with a Spanish style front, and began to show "talkies" in 1947. In 1965, the Spanish front was replaced with a mansard roof, and was sold soon after as part of the settlement of the Simpson estate.
It was renovated for use as a shopping complex in the 1970s and 1980s.
Tickets are available through the Chamber of Commerce for $25 in advance and $30 at the door. We had an overwhelming response to last year's event and tickets were SOLD OUT!!! Make sure you get your tickets to this year's event early. Please note that the event is the weekend PRIOR TO Labor Day this year allowing more locals to attend.
