This venue was known for showing midnight movie fare. I recall seeing “American Pop” at this location at a very late night screening.

The Skylake opened in 1972 as an independent. It was snatched up by Loews in 1974, along with the Kendall Twin, when General Cinema bought other Florida theatres.

Due to the Bay Harbor and 167th St Twin having a partner, Loews was unable to sell those two. Since they were unable to leave the market altogether they started buying theatres again.

Thanks to Loews, the little Skylake premiered some big films such as “Saturday Night Fever” in the then very competitive and over-screened North Miami Beach market.
