This theatre displays its name solely in large Arabic script on its facade, but fortunately its name was revealed to this writer by his guide. In Egypt, this name is pronouced MEE-am-ee. The white stuccoed facade is divided into bays by vertical streamlined fins. The central bay over the entrance is almost completely occupied by name and billboard space, where colorful illustrations promote the latest attraction.

The Miami Theatre is located across the street from the more well-known Metro Theatre.

Here is an excerpt from an article in the Bradford (PA) Era dated 3/11/46:

Cairo (AP)– A woman was killed and 30 persons were injured when a time bomb exploded last night |in the Miami Movie Theater in downtown Cairo. The explosion occurred during the playing of the Egyptian national anthem and threw the audience into a panic. Crowds massed around the theater as the injured, including some British soldiers, were carried out.
