Last Pitcher Show

Pitcher Show in Tampa

This eclectic theater in Tampa's Carrollwood area is the perfect place to relax in a casual and rustic setting and enjoy a movie, a drink, and food. This is the perfect place to catch a movie without crazy waits or being sold out.  At first this theater seems a little run down. Second look, it's an unconventional and fun theater. Are you a fan of the Rocky Horror Picture Show? Every Saturday night around 11:30 PM  - after the regular crowd leaves - they open the doors to the RHPS fans in their costumes. They have drag shows, a band, and other events before the showing.

Muvico in Ybor City

Muvico Centro Ybor 20 does have 16 theaters for all ages, so you can take the kids. They do have 4 Premier auditoriums for those 21 and over only. Adults who like to indulge will enjoy the full service bar that is located in the Premier lobby. Best of Tampa Tip: Head to theaters 15 or 16. They are more upscale with over-sized leather seats. The arm rests push up and out-of-the-way, which is perfect for close encounters with the date while watching the flick. The snack bar offers your typical theater food and some not so typical. Best of Tampa Bay Tip: try the buffalo wings and sliders. They're a tasty alternative to your average theater food. Parking is not free or close by. For the closer option try the valet parking. You can get your valet ticket validated inside the theater, for only $3.
