Fodor's Expert Review Tampa Theatre

Tampa Theater

This renovated 1926 movie palace is a gorgeous throwback to Hollywood’s golden age. A downtown icon, the Tampa Theatre boasts a charming indoor Mediterranean courtyard, replica antique statuary, ornate architectural artistry, and a Mighty Wurlitzer theater organ that’s still in use. Rescued from demolition in the late 1970s, the venue is not only a Tampa City landmark, it’s also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition to showcasing foreign, independent, and classic films on a daily basis, this cultural hot spot also hosts hundreds of community and educational events, concerts, and historic tours.
