The Tampa area is home to a wide variety of cultural landmarks and must-see buildings. However, none are as iconic as the Tampa Theatre, a nonprofit movie palace that hosts events ranging from classic movie screenings to concerts and spoken-word shows. The fall and winter season is a busy one for the Tampa Theatre, with several big-ticket events coming up.
