The courtyard atmosphere of the interior of the Tampa Theatre.

THE TAMPA THEATRE was built in 1926 as one of America’s most elaborate movie palaces in the “atmospheric” style of design, and was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. Upon entering the theater, audiences are transported to a lavish, romantic Mediterranean courtyard, replete with old-world statuary, flowers and gargoyles — all under a realistic night sky filled with twinkling stars.

Blue Seraph Productions’ first feature, Judas Kiss, played at TIGLFF in 2011.
