Tampa Bay On A Budget:
Tampa Theatre

Built in 1926 as one of America's most elaborate "movie palaces," the Tampa Theatre today is a fiercely protected and generously supported landmark. 


Designed by famed theater architect John Eberson, the Tampa Theatre is a superior example of the "atmospheric" style of theater design. Inside Tampa Theatre, audiences are transported to a lavish, romantic Mediterranean courtyard replete with old-world statuary, flowers and gargoyles.


Tampa Theatre was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, is a Tampa City Landmark, and is a member of the League of Historic American Theatres. 


Tickets are available for as little as $5 and a portion of sales funds the continuing restoration of Tampa Theatre.

Cara Davis, Lending Manager
Cara Davis


 Cara Davis has been the Retail Lending Manager at Tampa Bay Federal for two years and is happy to announce that lending restrictions on cars, signature loans and lines of credits have lightened a bit lately. 


"We are able to look at applications with less-than-perfect credit and make individual decisions we weren't able to make even six months ago," Cara explained. "Members interested in a loan can visit any Service Center, contact the loan specialists in our call center or log into Online Banking for an application. My team is here to make the loan process as easy as possible." 


When Cara isn't lending money, she is active in her Seminole Heights community. She also sits on Tampa's Architectural Review Commission where she helps enforce design guidelines for local historic neighborhoods.
