TAMPA, FL — On Thursday night, the Tampa Theatre will be showing a very special movie — a documentary about the theater itself, according to this report from USF campus newspaper The Oracle.
The film, shot by University of South Florida students, is a 30-minute documentary about the history of the Tampa Theatre and its contribution to the local community.
As Tara Schroeder, community relations director for the theater, put it: “I believe this documentary is very evocative of Tampa Theatre and it doesn’t just spit out the facts, but tells the story of the people who grew up with Tampa Theatre,” she said.
The film has also been picked up by local television station WUSF, which is planning an early June broadcast for the documentary.
Wish I could attend to see it! Sounds like a great idea. We are having an event in our building, too far away from yours, on Friday so there’s just no way. Good luck!
