Tarpon Theatre

The New Tarpon Theatre opened in a converted arcade prior to 1941. By 1943 it had been renamed Tarpon Theatre. By 1950 it was operated by Floyd Theaters. The seating capacity at that time was for 600.

Still operating in 1950, it later closed and has reconverted back to an arcade.

Boxoffice of April 22, 1939, ran this item, datelined Tarpon Springs: “Construction has started on an 800-seat theatre in the Taylor Arcade.”

I’ve found the Tarpon Theatre mentioned in Boxoffice at as late as January 7, 1956, when the manager was a fellow named Paul Lycan.
