Tampa Theatre Summer Classics Movie Series Returns For 2022

  • Sunday, June 05: Sing-Along West Side Story (1961 - PG-13), 3 p.m.

    Featuring Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Rita Moreno and directed by Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise, this is a sing-along of the Summer Classics movie series. Warm up that voice and sing along with your favorites.

  • Sunday, June 12: Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977 - PG), 3 p.m.

    Before anyone could possibly know just how this movie would change the face of cinema, George Lucas directed for us a gift.

  • Sunday, June 19: In the Heat of the Night (1967 - PG-13), 3 p.m.

    Sidney Poitier plays a detective in Sparta, Mississippi, where he faces tensions of the 1960’s during the investigation of a murder. As Mr. Tibbs, a well-respected homicide detective from Philadelphia, Poitier’s performance is nothing less than genius.

  • Sunday, June 26: Fail Safe (1964 - NR), 3 p.m.

    It must be seen to be understood. A cold-war story about a general who can attack the USSR without any safeguards… well, you just need to find out what happens on your own. It’s a serious look at what could possibly happen, and it features Henry Fonda, Walter Matthau, Larry Hagman and Dom DeLuise. There’s another film that takes a humorous look at the same story… you may have heard of it, Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove .

  • Sunday, July 3: Stand By Me (1986 - R), 3 p.m.

    Stand By Me was Directed by Rob Reiner, story by Stephen King, and it features Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Jerry O’Connell and Keifer Sutherland. What could go wrong with a lineup like that? “TRAIN!!!!”

  • Sunday, July 10: Pulp Fiction (1994 - R) 3 p.m.

    At least we can air the trailer. You know the cast. You know the dialogue. Some of you can already recite the entire film. Enjoy it at the Tampa Theatre as you never have.

  • Sunday, July 17: The Wizard of Oz (1939, NR), 3 p.m.

    These are classics, and this one is among the ones that needs no explanation. It’s not a sing-along, but sometimes you just can’t help it.

  • Sunday, July 24: Rear Window (1954, PG), 3 p.m.

    Alfred Hitchcock’s classic featuring Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly will keep you captivated.

  • Sunday, July 31: The Godfather (1972 - R), 3 p.m.

    One of the greatest of its genre,Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather is as good as it gets. Add Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Diane Keaton and Robert Duvall, and you have the movie that brought us Don Corleone and his most infamous offer.

  • Sunday, Aug. 7: Blazing Saddles (1974 - R), 3 p.m.

    Mel Brooks’ western spoof is, perhaps, an acquired taste. It’s considered one of his funniest works, and there’s even a new movie that is loosely inspired by the story. Blazing Saddles is still having an impact on the movie world.

  • Sunday, Aug. 14: All That Jazz (1979 - R), 3 p.m.

    The story of Bob Fosse, starring Roy Scheider, Jessica Lange and Ann Reinking.

  • Saturday-Sunday, Aug. 20-21: Casablanca (1942 - PG), Sat., Aug. 20 - 7:30 p.m., Sun. Aug. 21 - 3 p.m.

    It didn’t take a lot of special effects, jokes or salty language. Casablanca is a fantastic example of what you can do with great writing and great acting. Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre star in one of the finest films ever made. Even if you’ve never seen the film, you’ll recognize some very familiar lines.

  • Sunday, Aug. 28: The Cameraman & One Week (1920 & 1928 - NR), 3 p.m.

    This one may take a little explanation. Each summer, the movie series presents a silent movie, or in this case, two silent movies. These two Buster Keaton comedies will be accompanied by the Tampa Theatre’s 1926 Mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Organ.

    One Week is about a couple set out to build their starter home. Yes, Buster Keaton does his own stunts, and they likely wouldn’t be allowed today.

    In The Cameraman, Keaton is a photographer who falls for a secretary at MGM. He then begins filming strange events in strange situations.
