Cameo Theatre  Miami Beach

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The 1936 Cameo Theatre, a Miami Beach landmark and gem of Art Deco architecture, designed by Robert E. Collins, has been transformed into a Crobar nightclub, sister to those in New York, Chicago, Hollywood and Buenos Aires.

This theater was a favorite subject of painter Davis Cone, and appears several times in the book, “Popcorn Palaces”.

Is this a strip club now. It certainly isn’t CroBar. I saw a sign advertising lapdances outside. Very sad.

This very deceptive ad, that promotes “THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK” as light comedy, was the Cameo’s only Roadshow attraction. According to Variety, it was also one of the few successful runs for “Anne Frank” outside of new York.
