The Mercury was an experiment by opening an art house in 1999 in this slowly gentrifying section of Overtown, Miami. It was not a success and by 2002 it became the Soyka Cinema and then closed a year later.

Al,

This area is known as Morningside. Overtown ends in Wynnwood, which ends where the Design District currently resides. The area north of channel 10 and south of Little River is known as Morningside. Miami’s Morningside Park is just a few blocks away on NE 55th Terrace.

Although us old timers ie" “Natives” still use these neighborhood names. Miami’s original neighborhood names have gotten lost over time. It seems that the only ones which have retained their original names are Overtown, Wynnwood, Allapatah, Miami Shores, and Liberty City. Little River has now metamorphisized itself into Little Haiti. Like Little River, some of the other neighborhoods, such as Riverside have been renamed and are known as something else, ie: Little Havana, etc.

Miami Shores and El Portal were separate cities, at least back when I lived there.

What you call Morningside I used to know as the Puerto Rican section of Overtown. I always though the Mercury effort was part of that Design Destrict “chic” party crowd.
