After missing the 29th year of the Summer Classics Movie Series due to the COVID-19 shutdown, Tampa’s majestic movie palace, Tampa Theatre, is bringing back a great lineup of favorite films along with a long-awaited request from fans: more than one showing of each film.

Tampa film fans know that when it comes to beloved classics, there is no more authentic way to watch them than in a majestic movie palace like our very own Tampa Theatre. The Tampa Theatre’s beloved Summer Classics Movie Series is back this year after much of its programming was cancelled due to the pandemic.

“We hope that this year’s lineup of all-time favorite Summer Classics—along with our reduced capacity and other safety precautions—may encourage our friends and fans to make their post-shutdown ‘First Movie Back’ a classic at Tampa Theatre,” said Jill Witecki of the Tampa Theatre.

This summer, treat yourself to a good film at the historic movie palace.

“And to make that first trip back to the movies even easier to plan, Tampa Theatre is doing something our guests have often asked about—offering each Summer Classic more than once,” added Witecki.
