The GCC Cutler Ridge opened as a single screen cinema in 1963. It often showed subruns from the all distributors with occasional first-runs, as there were few theatres in the area and plenty of product. In 1975 it was twinned and in 1982 it was made a quad. In 1991 it was closed.

I spent many a Saturday afternoon as a kid at the Cutler Ridge Cinema. I remember seeng “The Incredible Mister Limpet” with Don Knots there, for one. The last film that I saw there before moving away from Miami was “ET.” I have fond memories of the place.

Worth noting the Cutler Ridge Cinema was General Cinema’s lone venue in Dade County until the mid 1970s (when they acquired several Loews locations and began new construction), by which time dominant players Wometco and Florida State began to decline.

The rendering in the grand opening ad (Al, thanks for including that in your excellent photostream) looks about 90 percent identical to the Pompano Cinema (and probably most other GCC properties of the time.

Damage from Hurricane David (seen on TV) a year after closing sealed the theater’s fate.

Thanks ken mc — Saw “Superman” at the Pompano Cinema (forgot there were no bargain matinees for that engagement). Three decades on, only the Riviera remains a (stage) theater.
