About The Florida Chautauqua, Inc.: Built in the 1920’s in connection with the growth and prosperity DeFuniak Springs enjoyed from being the host of the Winter Chautauqua, The Florida Chautauqua Theater was constructed to serve as a movie house. The only one in Walton County, the theater contained an orchestra pit which was used during the silent movie era. The theater was closed in 1984 and remained vacant until 1989. In 1989 The Florida Chautauqua, Inc. began sponsoring productions for the benefit of the community. In 1996 a historical perseveration grant in excess of $500,000 restored the theater to its 1920s state. Since the renovation it has operated continuously as a performing arts community theater hosting education classes and live theatrical performances.
