Tampa Theatre ( Florida Avenue Side), Tampa, Fl. The Tampa Theatre and Office Building is a historic U.S. theater and city landmark in the Uptown District of downtown Tampa, Florida. On January 3, 1978, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
Built in 1926 as one of America’s most elaborate “movie palaces,” the Tampa Theatre today is a fiercely protected and generously supported landmark. Designed by famed theater architect John Eberson. In 1973 it has to be closed down, but it reopened in 1977. It is managed by the not-for-profit Tampa Theatre Foundation and is a remarkable success story. It hosts more than 600 events each year, including a full schedule of first run and classic films, concerts, special events, corporate events, tours and educational programs.
