Need a ladies night out? Tonight Tampa Theatre is hosting a FREE screening of 2012’s “Magic Mike” with Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer and wrestling WWE star Kevin Nash.

It’s all part of a series that Film Tampa Bay Presents does to promote Tampa filmmakers. As you may know, parts of Magic Mike were filmed here in Tampa Bay. In the movie you see Fort Desoto Bridge, the Dunedin coast, Ybor City, and Tarpon Springs. The film is loosely based on Tatum’s stripping career here in the Tampa area.

Doors open at 6 for a cocktail party. The movie then begins at 7. It’s free, but you do need to reserve a spot online at the Tampa Theatre website. The first 150 in attendance will get free popcorn and soda, according to the website. But you’re encouraged to bring some dollar bills because they say there will be some kind of surprise after the movie.

The stars of Magic Mike then and now…
