WineFest 2019: Vino Royale
Though the James Bond theme may be fun and silly, WineFest’s purpose is most serious: now in its 17th year, this wine-focused weekend serves as the landmark theatre’s biggest annual fundraiser. Event chair Fred Zielinski notes that while James Bond may not have been much of a wine drinker, Tampa Theatre itself has a way of both shaking and stirring the hearts and minds of the community with its artistic and educational programming, as well as the 92-year-old movie palace’s ongoing preservation and restoration. Guests are encouraged to dress as their favorite character or come in Bond–inspired costumes.
Begins 8pm

Magic Tree House: Dinosaurs After Dark
For two decades, young readers have been enthralled by Mary Pope Osborne’s inventive Magic Tree House book series.
