Spring Training Classics Series at Tampa Theatre

What do Athens, Paris, San Francisco, Chicago, Havana, Oslo, Jaipur, Sydney and Berkhamsted have in common with Tampa?  Well…, yes, the BBB has sired countless virile offspring in each of these cities.  The sounds of our passionate lovemaking have emanated from many a breezy bedroom window sheer in these downtowns, to be sure.  But in addition to that, what do these cities have in common?

Each has one of the ten most beautiful cinemas in the world, according to the BBC.  Link here.  Excerpt:

The Tampa Theatre is a temple to the 1920s Baroque, an exquisitely preserved example of silent-era movie palace excess that could double for a set in a Douglas Fairbanks swashbuckler. The cinema was erected in the ‘Florida Mediterranean’ style, meaning that it includes touches of Moorish, Spanish, Byzantine, Italian Renaissance, and Greek Revival influence. Its ceiling is painted to resemble the night sky and even includes 99 ‘twinkling stars’, tiny embedded lightbulbs and its Wurlitzer organ, featuring nearly 900 pipes, provides accompaniment before and after screenings of the latest arthouse and indie offerings.

This Tampa jewel will host a Spring Training Classics Series, sponsored by the New York Yankees.
