Florida Orchestra to play live music for Chaplin movie, video game show

The Florida Orchestra will provide a "live soundtrack" for two special concerts next spring that marry the big screen with live music. First is Charlie Chaplin: The Gold Rush, with the orchestra playing along to the 1925 classic silent film about the antics of Little Tramp (it also celebrates the 100th anniversary of the character that debuted in 1914). Performances will be Feb. 28 at the Tampa Theatre and March 1 at the Palladium in downtown St. Petersburg. Tickets are $35. For rePLAY — A Symphony of Heroes, the orchestra will play themes from popular video games, including Final Fantasy, the Legend of Zelda, Elder Scrolls, Halo, Metal Gear and many others as movie screens bring the games to life. Tickets are $35-$45 for two April 19 shows at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg. For both concerts, go to for details and ticket information. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne

    Food & Dining

    ST. PETERSBURG — The story begins with Yucatan shrimp.

    St. Petersburg Deputy Mayor Kanika Tomalin, pilot Mark Futch, Boca Grande, St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman, and author and businessman Randy Wayne White,  Sanibel, exit a Maule Super Rocket seaplane after taking a fight around Tampa Bay off the St. Petersburg waterfront, 6/28/17.  White and his business partners are in negotiations with the City of St. Petersburg to build a fourth Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grille on the approach to the St. Petersburg Pier with a second event space on the pier according to White. The group met near Spa Beach after a ground breaking ceremony for the new pier. "We want to have our business open by the time the pier opens," said White. Other Dr. Ford restaurants are located on Sanibel, Captiva and Ft. Myers Beach. SCOTT KEELER   |   Times
