In 1988 the space was used by the Actors' Playhouse until they relocated to the Miracle Theater in Coral Gables.

In late 1991 or early 1992 I saw a play here with some other recent University of Miami grads and students. That the cinema had “thrived on student trade” as described above perhaps explains why the playhouse staff was not surprised we were U.M. students when to me the place was not that close to U.M.

Months later I thought I’d heard the place had been too damaged by Hurricane Andrew (August 1992) to function any longer, though the Actor’s Playhouse page says they did not move to the Miracle until 1995.

I walked by on February 14th, 2016. A JC Penney Home Store replaced the auditoriums years ago and to the left of that an empty storefront sits where I believe the entrance and lobby were the night I saw the play.

Most probably the Dadeland Twin.

I’m not sure if this is where I saw “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” with Richard Dreyfuss in 1977. There was a looong line.
