Theaters

174 E. Flagler Street, Miami, FL 33131
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. Learn more.
