Opened around 1912 and operated by Clifford Brown, the Wigwam Theatre was one of Miami’s earliest purpose built movie theatres. It was located on East Flager Street, between 1st Avenue and 2nd Avenue. The owner, a showman, gave away pianos and automobiles as part of theatre’s promotions.

By 1916 the Wigwam Theatre was closed.
