Sarasota Opera announces an expansion of their “HD at the Movie House” series entitled “Classic Movies at the Opera House.” The Sarasota Opera originally designed as a movie house and vaudeville theater,  is embracing the history of the building by bringing many of the classic films that  played at the theater when they originally premiered.

This inaugural series consists of five movies ranging in years from 1935-1972 beginning Friday, August 18th and run through September 22nd. Sarasota Opera will join with The Circus Arts Conservatory on August 18th for the opening showing of Cecil B. DeMille’s “The Greatest Show on Earth” re-creating some of the circus magic that was seen around the theater at the original Sarasota premiere of the film on January 31, 1952. Tickets for this new series are only $10 and all showings will begin at 7:30 pm. at the Opera House.
