I’ve created a Facebook page for all ex-employees/patrons of the Cinema 10 at Miracle Center:

Yes, that garage entrance ramp was doubly thrilling for those of us who drove a mid-80s Toyota Tercel with stick shift (but still nowhere near as heart-pounding as having to stop at the top of the former Centrust Tower garage ramp to make way for a slow-turning vehicle ahead, as a pickup truck barreled up behind me)…

One of Miracle Center’s first engagements was among the best afternoons I’ve ever spent at the movies: the 1989 “Lawrence of Arabia” restoration in 70MM. Excellent presentation in all aspects.
Also saw the restored “Spartacus” there, among other specialty fare.

Having a girlfriend in Coral Gables for a couple years led us to frequent visits. Remembering the crowds on weekend nights, I’m amazed Miracle Center had such a short shelf life.

LOL Al, you were not the only one. The majority of us theater employess, being in our late teens/early 20s and whatnot, had older, used cars at the time. Had a few struggles going up that ramp myself!

This was the theatre with the parking lot entrance so steep my car kept falling backwards. A stopped going for fear of the parking lot ramp. My car would groan at the mere sight of it.

Thank You for correcting me, although I hate to be corrected, but coming from you it was well-respected and accepted, LOL.
Now, it’s my turn to correct you: How could you not mention one Miseal Fernandez, another cult personality manager that had an impact in his short tenure at the theatre..??!! To me, when you mention the Cinema 10 @ the Miracle center managers, I instantly think of ( and not necessarily in that order):– Lover-boy Doss, Cool Cat Catoe, Easygoing Manny, Moody Pete, Well-Respected Misael, the ready for anything Mickey, Cry-baby Richard, Well-Liked Edith and the Competent yet Confused Danny.
One can’t forget from the cast of characters:– the high-powered Bessy, the irrepressible Rosa, the forward-thinking David, the can do the job tag team of Fernando & Carlos, the inspiring and joyful Doris, the well-prepared Miguel, the Feleciano Carlos, the I Am An Expert Quinto and the cute….(well, you finish the rest).
Oh and by the way, I liked your piece in the cinematreassure blog and I hope more and more friends will read them all and respond.
Imagine a Cinema 10 reunion, that would be AWESOME…!!
Juan, it was a true pleasure working with someone like you who was not only dynamic and strongly ambitious but also a human being who have had a lasting impression on many people he worked with. I know that you’ll be successful in whatever path of life you choose.
