Tampa Theatre is a local landmark with a rich history, but its impact on the area goes beyond the actual movie theater. Once again, Tampa Theatre offers its Sunset Cinema series, where they show movies in outdoor locations for free. Its a fun way to experience a family-friendly classic.
Tonight theyll be showing Raiders of the Lost Ark, (clearly the best in the Indiana Jones series) at River Tower Park, 401 E. Bird Street in Seminole Heights. An inflatable, 50-foot-wide screen and powerful sound system provide excellent visual and sound effects. If youve been to this event before, you know what I mean. The picture is sharp and the sound is clear. That means you can actually enjoy the movie.
Youll also enjoy the price, since it doesnt cost a thing. Just bring your lawn chairs, snacks, pets, Frisbees, coolers or whatever you want, stake out a good spot and enjoy the atmosphere. No alcohol or fireworks are allowed, and theyll also have concessions on sale if you dont want to bring your own.
The movie starts at 8, but the gates open at 6. Its probably a good idea to get there early, find a good spot and just relax for awhile. Other movies in the Sunset Cinema series this year include Field of Dreams, Back to the Future and Shrek. Ill mention those when they come up, too. But for now, enjoy the outdoor show this evening.
