The Tampa Theatre is amazing! When you step into the theatre, you are stepping into history: everything, from the water fountains to the fixtures, exudes that indescribable essence that creates an eerily antiquated atmosphere. When you take your seat to watch some old or independent film of monstrous caliber or historical significance, you will find yourself feeling as though you are among the night sky in all of its majesty, for the ceiling is littered with artificial stars and is of a mesmerizing shade of blue that grips the senses in intoxicating bliss. Also, they have popcorn and beer.

The building is a piece of art. It feels like you are stepping back in time when you walk in. Everything has been preserved beautifully. Prior to the movie, there was an organist that played lots of famous movie scores, which was pretty cool. The screen is a bit small compared to today's theaters, but that didn't matter too much. The movie was crisp and perfectly clear. No cup holders, so having popcorn, candy, and a drink was a bit of a juggle. All in all, I will return as I had a great time and like that all the money is used to preserve the history.

Every visit is an utter joy. From the friendly volunteer staff, to the immaculately restored environment, to the variety of events. One of the top old theatres in the world!

With more people downtown why can't Tampa Theatre do more than one screening at night? A 3:00 screening might bring more revenue to the theatre. I live in St Pete and don't have a car-the only way I can visit Tampa is on the city bus which stops at approx 6PM and picks up again at 6AM. I recently saw Knight of Cups at Tampa Theatre, rode the bus over but had to ride bike home (a 20 mile bike ride.) I appreciate that Tampa Theatre is showing foreign and indy releases that no one else is..just wish it was easier to get to by bus.

Response from the owner - 4 months ago
Thank you for the suggestion, Robert! We occasionally experiment with earlier screenings on weekdays, but - to be honest with you - haven't had much success with them. However, we have GREAT success with our earlier screenings on Saturdays and Sundays. We will definitely continue to experiment, and will certainly consider screenings in any time slot where we can draw enough people to make it make sense.

Very cool historic atmosphere and they do a lot of events. Recently saw the Purple Rain movie there and it was an awesome experience. Definitely recommend if you are into historic things or just looking for something cool to check out. They occasionally do backstage tours as well.

This is a very cool theatre with a great history. They've done a great job of restoring it and keeping it in good shape. Parking is a challenge but well worth the effort.

This gem is a "sister" institution of ours, built in the same era. The Tampa Theatre has been lovingly maintained and supported by volunteers, benefactors and grants. Seeing a movie is a treat when the mighty Wurlitzer ascends from the orchestral pit, and a live concert is wonderfully intimate with the small seating capacity.

Of the greatest historic landmarks in the Tampa Bay area. The prices are but two dollars more than the average ticket at an AMC or Regal theater, but the impressive interior is well-worth it. Closest way to describe its single theater is Mediterranean gothic. At the entrance, an antique concession stand that sells beer, soda, and candy. Follow the entryway and enter through the second set of doors into the theater room and follow the route of carpet into a seat near the stage and look up. A dark blue ceiling with small twinkling lights. Look right, a large facade that starts at the wall, arches above the stage and its screen, and ends on the left wall. Small lamps, open spaces, busts and intricate designs. The theatre is die-hard classicist. Old movies, fan favorites, well-received critiqued films often takes up its screen time: Casablanca, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Breakfast Club, Indiana Jones, Shakespeare in Love, Schindler's List, etc. Because the theater relies on donations and events to keep it afloat, the times are not always accommodating to most people's schedules. They hold events regularly, but that does not get in the way of primetime movie screening. If it's date night, and a movie you would enjoy watching is showing there, Tampa Theater is always a viable option.
