Tampa Theatre is 87 years old today

Tampa Theater

On this day—October 15—in 1926, Tampa Theatre opened its doors for the first time. The architect of this national historic landmark, John Eberson, has been quoted saying:

I want my theatres to create the feeling that one wants to come back and enjoy the restfulness of its surroundings.

87 years later, so many of our guests comment that he certainly achieved that.
