Steamboat Bill Jr. — Summer Classic Movie Series
(Sept. 26/ Tampa Theatre/ $7)
This is absolutely the last chance you’ll have to catch a classic film adorning the silver screen of the Tampa Theatre. Buster Keaton’s black-and-white Steamboat Bill, Jr. will send out this year’s series. Though it’s not in color and may seem carbon-dated, the film and event is still an experience that shouldn’t be missed, especially for those who have yet to venture into the Tampa Theatre. Watch a classic film in a theater that is a big part of Tampa’s history.
(Sept. 29/ St. Pete Times Forum/ Tickets range from $43.25-$83.25)
“Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now),” “In the Air Tonight” and “Sussudio” are just a small taste of the hits to expect when Phil Collins take centerstage at the St. Pete Times Forum. Collins has taken this outing on the road to poke fun of other farewell tours. Fellow musicians Cher and KISS pulled the farewell card are at this moment are playing to an audience somewhere in the world. Granted, this is Collins’ trademark humor, but it cause for a few belly laughs.
