Tampa Theatre Tour and Early Dinner

Monday, September 16, 2019 - 1:00pm
Tampa Theatre
711 N Franklin Street
Pat & Greg Watson

The September event will be a tour of the Tampa Bay Theatre. The Theatre was designed by famous architect John Eberson and built by Paramount Pictures. It opened on October 15, 1926, as one of America’s most elaborate movie palaces. Learn the Theatre’s history, secrets, stories, art, and architecture. Witness its historic restoration efforts, that saved it from demolition, with a “Balcony to Backstage” tour of Tampa’s majestic movie palace. The 90-minute tour kicks off in the lobby and includes a demonstration of the mighty Wurlitzer Organ. Because tours are only offered during the week, this tour will be on a Monday, we hope you can join us. Early dinner will follow the tour at the Columbia Restaurant at 2117 E. 7th Ave. Tampa, FL 33605 (813)-248-4961.
