Film Tampa Bay Presents: Cocoon – A Heartwarming Film Screening at Tampa Theatre

July 8, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Film Tampa Bay Presents: Cocoon, a quarterly series at Tampa Theatre, offers a delightful opportunity to experience local films and engage with the Tampa Bay film community. On Saturday, July 8 at 3:00pm, Tampa Theatre will screen the 1985 Ron Howard classic, Cocoon. This heartwarming comedy-drama explores the themes of aging and finding meaning in life’s later stages.

Cocoon was filmed right across the bay in St. Petersburg, making it a special treat for local film enthusiasts. As you watch the film, keep an eye out for recognizable locations such as the Shuffleboard Club, the Coliseum, and the Snell Arcade. The movie beautifully captures the essence of the area and showcases the talent and creativity of the local film industry.

The screening of Cocoon will be followed by an audience Q&A session with special guests Jordan Klein, Sr., an Academy-Award-winning underwater camera operator, and his son Jordy Klein, an aerial and aquatic cinematographer, both of whom worked on the film. This is a unique opportunity to gain insights into the behind-the-scenes magic of filmmaking and hear firsthand stories from the industry experts.

Doors will open at 2:00pm, and the first 150 patrons to enter will receive complimentary popcorn and soda, adding to the nostalgic moviegoing experience. Admission to this event is free, but it is essential to make reservations in advance to secure your spot.

If you’re planning to invite a small group of friends, consider arriving early to ensure everyone gets to enjoy the complimentary treats and find seats together. It’s a fantastic opportunity to bond over a shared love for cinema and create lasting memories with your friends.

Join us at Tampa Theatre on July 8 for an afternoon filled with laughter, emotion, and the magic of storytelling. Experience the joy of community screenings and celebrate the local film industry. Reserve your spot today and embark on a cinematic journey with Cocoon.

Flirtatious Finale: “Are you a camera? Because every time I look at you, I smile like I’m on the big screen. Let’s go on a cinematic adventure together at the Film Tampa Bay Presents: Cocoon screening!”
