This is a treasure that Tampa must always keep and support. I have not seem a theater as beautiful since I was a child and my mother would take me to the Lowe's theater in Jamaica, Queens, NYC.

Really glamourous old movie theater that has been well preserved and has the old organ and candy counter. Take the tour or attend a movie.

This place is simply amazing. The building is from Hollywood's Silver Screen era - once there, you can just imagine how it was so many years ago. The best part - we recently saw "Casablanca" there - was the man playing all of the movie's show tunes on the Wurlitzer Organ. Even if you don't want to watch a movie there, you will be stunned at the beauty of an ordinary tour!

I absolutely love the building...the first time I was there I spent almost as much time admiring the carvings and atmosphere as watching the movie...and, it was nice to be able to have a glass of wine while I watched. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

We love the Tampa Theatre ... had fun on the tour and learning about the hauntings and renovations. It was a highlight to be able to hear the organ get played and watch a fab movie!
