Constructed in 1935 in the Mediterranean Revival style, the interior of the Garden Theatre was modeled after a Spanish courtyard with Romeo and Juliet balconies, a Spanish tile roof and a dark blue ceiling resplendent with stars. The Garden Theatre underwent several renovations until closing in 1963, falling victim to the popularity of television.
The City of Winter Garden purchased the building in 2002, turning over restoration efforts to the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation. The joint effort between the Foundation and the City culminated in the successful re-opening of the Garden Theatre in February 2008 with a gala performance featuring local talent and Broadway star Davis Gaines of Phantom of the Opera fame.
