Balcony to Backstage Tour


Where does the organ go when the movie starts? Why is there a stuffed peacock perched near the proscenium? (And, for that matter, what is a “proscenium” anyway?)

Learn the Theatre’s secrets, stories, art and architecture and witness its historic restoration efforts with a “balcony to backstage” tour of Tampa’s majestic movie palace. The 90-minute tours will kick off in the lobby at 11:30am and include a demonstration of the Mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Organ.

These tours do sell out, so please consider buying your tickets in advance, either online by clicking your preferred date and time at right, or in person at the historic Franklin Street Box Office.
