Northtown Theatre, Tampa FL

The Northtown Theatre was another one of the Seminole Heights movie theatres. It was opened June 1, 1941, and was operated by the Claughton Theaters chain by 1950. It likely carried on until at least the 1960’s. The building was still standing in 1995, but it was replaced by an Eckerd Drugs store by about 2000.

The address listed is for the Advanced Auto Parts store that occupies the old Eckerds building.

Great stuff, Nick. I think us Tampa guys are very lucky to have such elaborate picture databases, between USF and the Burgert Brothers and whatnot.

Andy/Major: Tampa is blessed not only with the Burgert Brothers photos but the Roberson & Fresh collection as well. Many cities had no historical photographers at all. Not being picky here and I’m very thankful for the theatres they did photograph but only wished they had taken more interior shots.

As a young boy, I used go to the Saturday matinees with the neighbor kids. Two westerns, a cartoon carnival and a serial (Rocket Man, Flash Gordon, etc.) took all afternoon. Afterward, we stopped at the corner drugstore on Buffalo and Nebraska for a cherry Coke from the fountain. They were great times.

I worked in the ticket booth when I was 15yrs old and a student at HHS. One of my best friends worked in the concession area and other friend worked in the ticket booth at the Seminole theater. Loved every minute of it.

My mother and father met each other at this movie theater. Then about 1962 the IBEW Local 915 bought it for their union hall. My dad became business manager for the IBEW in 1965 and his office was upstairs.

Uploaded a small ad for the Northtown theatre saying it will open on June 1st. Ads were hard to find in the Tribune throughout 1941 for this cinema.
