I have an extra special regard for the Tampa Theatre as I am blessed to be able to play the magnificent WurliTzer theatre organ before some of the movies. Sitting at the organ console and riding it up through the stage opening with the multicolord spot lights shining on it is a fantastic rush. To realize that I am sitting on the same organ bench that some of the most famous theatre organists including our beloved Rosa Rio has sat, playing it is an honor. The organ is carefully and lovingly cared for by the Central Florida Theatre Organ Society members. If you have not yet paid a visit to the “Tampa” as we call her, you must come.
