Airdrome  1921

Viewing: Photo | Street View

In operation from 1918 to 1926, this was the second of two Airdome Theatres on the current site of Gusman Hall.

The Leach Family who owned this eventually partnered with Famous Players-Lasky to form the Miami branch of Paramount-Publix.

Two views of the Airdome:

Note the two different spellings (AIRDROME and AIRDOME) used at the entrance. I have submitted “Airdome” as that was the most common listing.

Yes this is quite a different looking movie house. I think it is very unique inside. I noticed the wood benches! Wow, never seen anything like that. I have to wonder how long folks sat there without getting up to give their backs a rest!
