This was owned by Holiday Theatres in the seventies.

Across the street from the Seminole Theater on Krome Avenue in downtown Homestead is the Homestead Historic Town Hall Museum. As of October 2014 when I last visited there were maybe 3-4 historic photos on display of some of the cinemas listed here on Cinema Treasures as formerly existing in Homestead. One may be of the Homestead Theater when it was called the Palms.

Walk to the back of the museum where the former jail cells are located, go left and look on the walls. I had noticed the same photos during visits in preceding years so I assume they may be on permanent display. The museum staff may be able to help you find them and other photos they may have.

Here is a link to the Museum’s Trip Advisor page:

I believe I was told or read somewhere that the Homestead Theater building was damaged enough by Hurricane Andrew that it was demolished shortly afterwards, though the theater apparently had already closed well before the storm.
