Florida – Tampa – Tampa Theater

Last night, I volunteered at the Tampa Theater.  They were having their annual “Hollywood Awards Night” (on the night of the Academy Awards telecast).    (http://www.artstampabay.com/event/detail/441900515)

It was a great event.  There was lots of Hollywood-like flash and energy.  People dressed  up and walked the red carpet.

The theater was built in the 1920s.  It is an elaborate masterpiece of design.  (http://tampatheatre.org/ & http://tampatheatre.org/faqs/)

I entered the Tampa Theater after the Academy Awards telecast had started.   As a result, my photographs were taken in very low light, without a tripod.  I apologize for the less than stellar quality pictures.  However, even in bad light and blurry, the theater still shows its beauty.

In the balcony, I saw a magnificent scene.  The best I can describe it is as a town-like scene and a blue (sky) ceiling with small lights (to look like stars).
