The Cazin Theatre appeared on the scene sometime in the 1920’s. It was located in the then-independent city of West Tampa on the busy Howard Avenue commercial strip. It had changed its name to the Howard Theatre in 1938. It became the Westown Theatre on March 16, 1947.
West Tampa was annexed by the City of Tampa and subsequently declined with the departure of the cigar business, combined with urban renewal and the construction of Interstate 4 (now 275). The building remains standing, but, while preservationists have begun to pay more attention to West Tampa, will likely sit vacant for some years to come.
