Campfire Stories


Since the beginning of time, humans have gathered around the fire to share stories and tell tales. If you’re not careful, your eyes start to play tricks on you, and your imagination starts to wonder what might be lurking in the shadows just beyond the trees.

Join Tampa Theatre on Halloween Eve for scary stories around the campfire under the historic movie palace’s iconic starry sky! Author and local scare-lebrity Scott Swenson will host a family-friendly evening of PG-13 tales, featuring the Storytellers of Old Tampa Bay.

Tickets are $10 / $7 for Tampa Theatre Members and are on sale now. Doors open at 6:00pm, and Swenson will be signing copies of his books in the lobby before and after the show.
