This historic theatre opened in 1926 and was designed as a movie theatre by John Eberson. It was an opulent movie theater and, by the end of the 1920's, more then 90 million Americans were going to the movies every week. But, by the 1960's and 1970's, going to the movies was no longer the great American past time and the theatre was in poor repair. Many of the theatres of the time were demolished. In 1978 the theatre had been restored by the city of Tampa and reopened with films, concerts and special events. The foyer is spectacular and showcases the 2004 renovation that took place. The ceiling in the foyer is a blue night sky with "stars" and the restored woodwork is gorgeous. There are tours only on weekends and you most likely will need advance reservations, available on their website. At the end of the very excellent tour we had an explanation of the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ and a short concert. It was spectacular!! I would recommend this tour to anyone who likes and appreciates historic buildings!

We came here on Saturday night to enjoy a musical concert/performance by Post Modern Jukebox (PMJ). We were seated in the 4th row from the stage . The view and location was awesome! The theatre itself is worth a visit.

A 1926 Movie Theater meticulously restored to its glory days of the silent film. Take the 2 + hour guided tour of this beautiful theater will acquaint you to the films of the past present and future. Watching and seeing an organist make the original Wurlitzer pipe organ come to life is worth the nominal tour fee - what a sound! The CEO of the non-profit historical theater is your guide, and knows all the history and more that willing to share it. If you miss the tour, buy a ticket to see an old silent film with live organ accompaniment. Certainly not like like watching a silent on TV. Thoroughly enjoyable.

This is absolutely a gem. A marvelous old movie palace complete with organ that use to accompany silent films. The architecture is unique and gargoyles are plenty. This theater has so many different offerings from old movies to the latest films, live performances, stand up and concerts included. They even have an Oscar night where you can dress in costume or your finest. I took the tour it was wonderful. You can book before you go on their website. Go and enjoy.

I used to come here as a kid in the '50's on Saturday morning. Cartoons followed by western triple features. You could get in with an RC bottle cap. Now, as an adult, it still looks great but smaller somehow and westerns are no longer shown. Now, it's more artsy films. Still a great old theatre.
