This is the second in a series of posts I am doing of photographs I have taken over the years of classic movie theaters. Since living in the Tampa Bay area I have had the opportunity to attend shows at The Tampa Theater many times. It opened in 1926 and remains today an active movie theater showing current independent, foreign and classic films. Here is a link to the theater’s website and history. Some of the photos are of questionable quality but I hope you enjoy them anyway.
The first set of photographs were taken in 2008. In between showings of the film (The Diving Bell and The Butterfly) the theater’s management was kind enough to let me take these shots.
The second set of photos were taken in 2010 during a showing of Fritz Lang’s silent classic METROPOLIS shown with live accompaniment on the Mighty Wurlitzer by Dr. Steven Ball.
