Goody Goody®: Past Present and Future (2018)
Long before fast food and burger chains, Goody Goody® captured Tampa’s hearts and taste buds.
From 1925 on, generations loved it. First dates and marriage proposals. Pre-work coffees and post-game meals. A community connected over an unpretentious diner, its signature hamburger (with secret sauce!) and some butterscotch pie.
This sweet documentary debut by the award-winning team of Lynn Dingfelder and Larry Wiezycki (JFK in Tampa) chronicles the reimagining and rebirth of Goody Goody® in 2016 after its closing in 2005.
Come hear stories from longtime customers. Discover what’s in the restaurant’s “secret sauce.” Savor all the interesting ingredients that make up this iconic Tampa eatery.
Goody Goody®: Past Present and Future … the documentary for people with good taste.
Following the screening, please stick around for a discussion and audience Q&A with Goody Goody® owner Richard Gonzmart, the filmmakers, and Tampa Theatre CEO John Bell, moderated by Colette Bancroft of the Tampa Bay Times.
Richard Gonzmart and the Columbia Restaurant Group will provide a $10 gift card to Goody Goody® to every paying guest, and will also match 100% of the admission revenue in a donation to Tampa Theatre’s Cush Your Tush seat campaign.
