Get freebies at Tampa Theatre on Sunday

The Tampa Theatre wraps up its Family Favorites film series Sunday at 2 p.m. with a showing of E.T., but get there early for some giveaways. Outspokin Bicycles will be giving away a BMX bike (we wonder if this one can fly across the moon like Elliott's). Other door prizes will include passes to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Tampa Theatre tickets and your very own Tampa Theatre gargoyle, "Ebie," shown here. Ebie was designed by T. Oliver Kopian and created by the Creatures of Delight studio, formerly of Ybor City, for a piece commissioned by the Tampa Theatre Restoration Society in 2007, said Tampa Theatre spokeswoman Jill Witecki. He is named after the theater's architect, John Eberson. Only 25 were created, and each is hand-signed and numbered by the artist. The theater will be giving one away as a door prize before E.T., and the few remaining will be available for sale at the concession stand. Tickets are $9 for adults and $7 for children at the box office or online at The historic movie house is at 711 N Franklin St. in Tampa. —Sharon Kennedy Wynne
