Tampa Bay is the birthplace of Stuck in the '80s, and even though your humble host has moved to Orlando, my heart remains firmly in the historic institutions of the Bay Area – including the always amazing historic Tampa Theatre. So I think it's like totally awesome the Tampa Theatre has announced that the '80s will be the big star in the first classic movie series in the venue's newly restored auditorium.
It's a good wide selection of flicks including the mandatory viewings of Ferris Bueller and Fast Times. But I'm surprised to Dune and Steel Magnolias in there – something for everyone, right?

The series begins Jan. 12. Tickets for the Totally '80s classic movie series are $10 for adults and $7 for Tampa Theatre members at the Box Office or online at www.TampaTheatre.org. Here's the full lineup:
