Ghosts of Tampa Theatre Tour


Who was the man in seat 308? Where did Robert Lanier tear his final ticket? Why does Fink Finley continue to roam the balcony? And what has led to Tampa Theatre being known as one of the most haunted buildings in town? Learn the Theatre’s secrets and stories with a “balcony to backstage” tour that will focus on the historic movie palace’s ghostly guests, preternatural patrons and eternal employees.

The 75-minute tour kicks off in the lobby and does include climbing stairs and extended periods of standing. Doors open 15 minutes before tour time.

NEW THIS YEAR: Go beyond the stories and spend some time investigating Tampa Theatre’s supernatural claims for yourself! The new Paranormal Investigation Experience add-on allows a limited number of guests to stay after the Sunday evening tours from 10:30pm to midnight on Oct. 20 and 27 to review previously collected video, photo and audio evidence of Tampa Theatre’s spirit activity, use professional equipment and investigate alongside the researchers from Genesis Paranormal Services. Admission is limited to 25 participants.

Ghost Tour tickets are $15 for general admission / FREE for Tampa Theatre Members. The Paranormal Investigation Experience add-on is $25 for general admission / $20 for Members.  (Tour ticket purchase is required to access add-on experience.)

TICKETS GO ON SALE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13. Ghost Tours tend to sell out quickly, so please get your tickets in advance!
