In the excitement of the roaring 20s, a new kind of movie palace was constructed by the Bay. More than 90 years later, Tampa Theatre has become known as one of the most haunted buildings in the city, filled with the spirits of former employees, patrons and guests.
Join us for the very special premiere of a new, feature-length documentary that explores the unique and historic Tampa Theatre like never before, and discover the entities whom ghost hunters believe “choose to remain at the Tampa Theatre,” in the ultimate haunted backstage tour.
Filmed over the past year, Ghosts Behind the Screen features Tampa Theatre staff, local paranormal investigators, Theatre patrons, Tampa historians and dramatic recreations telling the stories that give the historic movie palace its ghostly reputation. And the cameras were rolling when spectral projectionist Fink Finley decided to make his presence known to a group in the projection booth!
This premiere screening is free and open to the public. Following the film, Producer Gina Watson and director Brett Gerking will lead a discussion and audience Q&A.
