pdwinter22's comment about being here for 20 years and never having been to the Tampa Theater does not prove how popular it is or isn't. It only proves how Stupid he, or she is!! I am a Native of Tampa and remember having to get 2 bus transfers to get to the Tampa Theater every Saturday back in the 50's and 60's when I was a child. I would watch the same movie over just to be in this magnificent theater.
I moved away for 20 years and was so afraid to go back when I moved back home because nothing is ever as Grand as you remember it. I was wrong!! I got chills the second that I walked into the lobby. It is just as magnificent as it was when I was a child, and just as romantic as when my parents were dating back in late 30's. pdwinter22 ,GO HOME to your trashy Drive Inn""s from your youth!!
I love to go there and to share it with my out of town friends
