Great news about you theatre folks being honored! I’ll check out the Imperial site. Haven’t heard from Bill in months now. I’ll also take a look at the Belmont. I remember Mrs. Peggy…very nice lady. She gave us a complete lesson on process of booking films for the Belmont. I remember she ranted about Disney’s restrictions for drive-in showings. She wasn’t a happy camper about that!

I lived in Tamps from 1983-1996 and it is sad to think that all that is left of all those great theaters that eventuallu opened is AMC megaplexes. UGH

Mikeoaklandpark, Megaplexes are the only theatres that exist in Tampa now with the exception of the Tampa Theatre. I don’t recall any other single-screeners still operating in the area. Unless you count the twin-screen BEACH THEATRE in St. Pete Beach which is about as close to a single-screen as you’re gonna get today.

The Beach is a twin? I’ve been in there plenty of times and only saw the main auditorium. Unless, of course, there’s a balcony?

Sorry my error! I just checked and the Beach is still a single screen theatre. Don’t know how I figured it to be a twin. I was probably thinking of another older area theatre that was twinned several years ago…the Zephyrhills Home Theatre. How I confused this one with the Beach is beyond me. Sorry for the scare! I need to check facts before posting.

Horizon Park 4 opened on August 26, 1971 and closed on September 29, 1997. Remember Twin Bays 4 in South Tampa right behind the Britton Theatre? It also opened on the same day as Horizon Park 4 and ironically closed just one month later on September 28, 1997. Both theatres were open for just over 26 years.
