The Tampa Theater hosts the Oscars every year and it is a wonderful event. This year I went with a girlfriend and it makes a fantastic girls night out. We dressed the part.

They have a limo ride where you are able to arrive in the limo. Once there they have a red carpet and we got our pictures taken and were interviewed by the red carpet host and photographed. The theater is very ornate inside and a perfect Oscar venue. They had free appetizers and a cash bar. You can stay as long as you want. It is general admission but there is not a bad seat in the house for this event.

Saw Lily Tomlin perform at Tampa Theatre in early April! The décor is very nice, old-style theatre with elaborate ceiling layout and detailed designs. Good selection of drinks and snack choices were okay also.

While I enjoyed the Lily Tomlin performance, I'd like to go back and see a movie there sometime. They show screenings on a regular basis and they seem to have a good variety.

This theater was recently voted one of the most beautiful theaters in the world by several international media outlets. It is an absolute must-see. I've been several times for comedy shows and also for the Sunday matinee. Be sure to get there in time for the organ that opens the movies. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time when movies were glamorous and an "event". Love the Tampa Theater!

Great Movie Theater, from the chairs inside to the bar outside. I wish we had one like it in Savannah, GA.

The theatre is a historic grand creation. Its hard to tell from the outside what lies inside the doors. Balconies, a scene on the ceiling including moving clouds, gives a feel of the old days. Great place to see a concert or even a movie. Also it is apparently haunted.
