Tampa Theatre tour May 6

Share on Nextdoor

On Wednesaday morning, you can do that during one of its Backstage to Balcony tours. The tour runs about an hour and a half and takes you all over the theater...you know, from the backstage to the balcony. You'll hear about history, stories (including ghost stories) and other anecdotes spanning its 82-year-history. There's even a demonstration of the famous Mighty Wurlitzer organ. And the whole thing costs just $5. It's definitely worth it.

The tour starts at 11:30 a.m.

Tampa Theatre, located at 711 Franklin Street in downtown Tampa, is the kind of place you visit while focusing on something else— a movie or a concert or whatever. But this historic landmark could be a destination in its own right. The architecture alone makes it special, and it would be interesting just to check it out and learn about its history without anything else going on.
