From our Director of Development

Thank you for supporting our majestic movie palace Tampa Theatre during these very challenging times. Your support is so important to us!

We want to ensure our community’s safety, so Tampa Theatre – working alongside our film distributors, show promoters and rental clients – has made the difficult decision to postpone many events and films and close our doors during the rising public health threat of COVID-19.

This type of a shutdown is very difficult for nonprofit organizations like us and we are so grateful that you are considering stepping in to help us. Like you, we continue to take our cues from public health officials, and are hopeful that we will be able to welcome our friends and neighbors again soon.

*NEW* Charitable Giving Tax Deduction

Under the COVID-19 relief stimulus package, everyone—itemizers and non-itemizers alike—are allowed an above-the-line tax deduction for up to $300 in charitable donations made in 2020.

Our President and CEO John Bell has said it best: “While there is a great deal of anxiety and uncertainty at the moment, I find comfort in the certainty that when this crisis has passed, Tampa Theatre will be there for you. I suspect we will need our beautiful, historic Tampa Theatre more than ever as a place to gather, embrace each other and celebrate our collective humanity once again.”

We cannot wait to re-open our doors and continue to serve our community that we love so dearly.

In your service,

Maggie Webber
