1987-88 phone book says actual address was 7150 SW 57th Avenue, South Miami, FL 33143.

As I said in my first comment, it faced Red Road (SW 57th).

I remember there were a few artistic-looking perhaps Roman-like chunks of demolished Holsum Bakery architecture on display as a tribute to the former bakery on the floor of the lobby of the Bakery Centre shopping mall. They were removed by the time the Bakery Centre closed and I don’t know what became of them.

Perhaps they had been part of the original Riviera Theatre?

The entrance to the AMC Bakery Centre 7 faced Red Road, approximately opposite to the intersection of Red Road and San Ignacio Avenue. (If you were to stand back then in front of what is now Shula’s 347 Grill at 6915 Red Road, Coral Gables and looked across Red Road, you would have seen the theater entrance.)

There was several feet of open tiled space between the sidewalk and the entrance that was slightly lower than the sidewalk. You’d go down maybe three steps then walk through the open space flanked by movie poster boxes on the angled side walls to reach the front doors.

The marquee was a tall sign on the corner of South Dixie Highway and Red Road, on the edge of what was the Bakery Center parking lot across Red Road from what is still Wendy’s. The former parking lot is now filled in by The Shops at Sunset Place.
