Tampa Theatre hosting free movies this Saturday and Sunday

If you’re still eating leftover barbecue this weekend, take a breather and head over to Tampa Theatre this weekend for some free movies.

The historic landmark is part of free streaming service Pluto TV’s “Summer of Cinema” campaign, which supports independent and family run theaters around the U.S., and provides guests with free tickets, giveaways, and activities “to honor the magic of cinema and inspire patrons to support local and historic theaters”.

“Pluto TV’s summer movie campaign has received an incredibly positive response year after year, and we are excited to highlight our extensive film offering once again,” said Amy Kuessner, EVP of Programming for Pluto TV. “By joining ‘Summer of Cinema’ with ‘Free Movie Weekends,’ Pluto TV is able to champion a love of blockbuster movies and allow audiences to experience the fun both at theaters and in their homes, all for free.”

Tampa Theatre will be playing several free showings and film including:

  • KINDS OF KINDNESS in the microcinema (4 screenings)
  • APOLLO 13 in the historic hall (1 screening)
  • MAXXXINE in the historic hall (4 screenings)

This project is part of Pluto TV’s Business Karma initiative that strives to pay it forward to local communities and businesses. The “Free Movie Weekend” began in 2021 to encourage people to return to the movies after a trying year. As of this year, about 40 theaters in 30 states have been sponsored.

To redeem your free tickets, purchase them on Tampa Theatre’s website and select your show time for any of the film screenings this weekend. Head over to the theatre’s Instagram and Facebook for any updates.
