Visit the Fillmore’s website for more information: http://fillmoremb.com/ The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater began in 1950, when Golden Era legends graced the stage of the Miami Beach Municipal Auditorium. Guests came from around the world to watch such shows as song and dance performances, comedy, or even the occasional boxing match. Sometimes, the real performances were in the seats - Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, and Jack Benny were regular visitors to the auditorium and often caused quite a stir. In 1964, the city of Miami Beach offered Jackie Gleason the opportunity to film his show here. Mr. Gleason agreed to move his show to sunny Miami Beach, where he declared: "Miami Beach audiences are the greatest in the world!"
