The Tampa Theatre is a protected historic landmark and one of America’s best-preserved examples of grand movie palace architecture. See what makes the building so special during their Balcony-To-Backstage Tours. The tour is an entertaining behind the scenes visit to the Tampa Theatre, where art, mythology, and history are interwoven through one of America’s best preserved examples of grand movie palace architecture. Tours include a performance on the Mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Organ, a magnificent three-manual, 14-rank instrument, which was originally installed when the Tampa Theatre opened in 1926 to accompany silent films. Although the Organ was relocated to a radio station and then a church during the Theatre’s history, it was found, rescued and reinstalled by volunteer members of The Central Florida Theatre Organ Society (CFTOS) in the 1980s.
