I remember the Parkway as the art house in the ‘60s and '70s. I first saw Dracula and Frankenstein there (on a double-bill) in the late '60s (I think).

The Miracle during the early ‘70s was a great house. The TV in the lobby was always tuned to WTVJ-4 (also a Wometco property), and the A/C was strong. I saw The Way We Were multiple times in its original run at the Miracle, even taking a date once to sit on the lip of the balcony to make out. The Miracle capped off the tony feel of the Mile during those years. After a movie we’d go to The Scandinavians (a gift shop way ahead of its time for Miami), and then Jahn’s for ice cream.
