I believe I was told by a local historian that a young Fidel Castro once made a fundraising speech here before taking over Cuba.

That ad shows a Franklin Miami number, this ad is from the early 60’s, and not past 1965. The named extensions died in the mid 60s as far as advertising goes.

I saw “Milagro a los Cobardes” (1962) there with Ruth Roman and Javier Escrivá. I don’t know whether Ruth Roman spoke Spanish or her character’s voice was dubbed.

This Flagler/Radio Centro must have been torn down for the I-95 expressway.

Ripshin, the Trail is still there and is now a Latin Quarter Cultural Center presenting spanish language plays.

That MUST be it! I was at UM at the time I saw the film, but a year later, moved just three blocks south of this theater, on Douglas. Never went back again. It’s very possible I saw a Spanish-subtitled version of the film, and the reason I never returned. It’s the NW corner, and I remember parking behind the auditorium, with the screen at the west end. Thanks for the suggestion – makes total sense.

Ripshin, could you be thinking of the Trail on 37th Avenue and 8th Street?

I seem to remember it being near the big gray Florida Power & Light (??) building, that was once lighted in bright colors. Whatever the intersection, it was on the NW corner.

Unrelated to this theater, but I remember a theater in the area of Flagler and Le Jeune. I saw a special rerelease of “The Exorcist” around 1982. I could be wrong about the intersection. It was an older theater with a nice marquee. It showed special releases by the 80s, I think, and was a bit run down.

I believe this was last known as Radio Centro.
