THEATERS

Miami Film Festival is proud to play movies in theaters across the city, bringing film to as many neighborhoods as we can.  More venues will be added for the 2017 season as they are confirmed.

Olympia Theater

Olympia Theater
174 E. Flagler Street, Miami

The Olympia Theater opened in 1926 as a silent movie palace and amazed the public with its stunning Moorish architecture, perfect acoustics and simulated night sky, complete with wafting clouds and twinkling stars. It also achieved fame as the first air-conditioned building in the South. The “talkies” and Vaudeville soon arrived at the Olympia, and for more than 40 years the theater was a top center of entertainment in Miami.  Thanks to extensive restorations in the 1970s, the theater was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.  This beloved cultural venue has retained its stature in a downtown that continues its own transformation. The Festival is pleased to present its CINEDWNTN Galas at the Olympia Theater.

Regal South Beach Cinemas
1100 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach

The Regal South Beach is a crown jewel on Miami’s famous pedestrian-only Lincoln Road Mall. Fully modern and technologically equipped, its three-story pastel stain glass windows are still reminiscent of the bygone Art Deco era so present in its surrounding architecture. Festival films are presented the full 10 days of the Festival on 2 of Regal’s 18 screens. It is definitely one of the busiest places to be during the Festival!

Tower Theater
1508 Southwest 8th Street, Miami

MDC’s Tower Theater is one of Miami’s oldest cultural landmarks. When it opened in December of 1926, it was the finest state-of-the-art theater in the South.  MDC’s Tower Theater continues to serve as a historic gathering place for cultural connections in Little Havana, where the community can enjoy alternative and culturally specific exhibitions and performances, free educational lectures given by MDC faculty and other scholars in our community, and both Spanish-language films and English-language films, subtitled in Spanish.  In 2011, USA Today declared MDC’s Tower Theater “one of the 10 great places to see a movie in splendor” in the newspaper’s round-up of the best old-fashioned movie palaces in America.
