Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

This beautiful but small art house on the upper floors of a Coconut Grove office building was a short-lived experiment in 1987-89. It was originally opened by Nat Chediak to compliment his successful Arcadia and Cinematheque theatres in Coral Gables.

Within a few years Coconut Grove would have 26 screens.

I had no idea there was a cinema at this location until the Women’s International Film Festival used it as a venue one time in maybe 2007 or 2008.

Up the stairs of the open air building then to the left there was a nondescript door that led to a small rectangular theater with black walls.

The projectionist for the festival for this venue was also the projectionist for the Bill Cosford Cinema. If I remember correctly he told me he had been the projectionist back when the Grove Harbour was open for business (and seemed surprised he got to project at this location again).

I walked by on December 27th, 2015 and from the sidewalk through the foldable fence could still see a sign saying “Theater Teatro” that had been there in 07/08.

It’s across the street from Mr. Moe’s bar/restaurant.
