The Flamingo Theatre opened the week of January 10, 1947, according to an item in that day’s issue of Film Daily.

As Al alluded to in the very first comment, I added a photo of the Flamingo during its run of “I am curious yellow”

The last article has a critical error. The Sheridan was never a Brandt house.

The Brandt organization owned several Times Square theatres and ran the Flamingo, Cinema, Plaza Art, Beach and Lincoln in Miami Beach during the sixties and seventies.

I am not sure if “Bingo” was involved but the Brandt group was not above showing porn.

When this was operated by Brandt—was it Bingo Brandt, who ran a number of adult theaters in New York City’s Times Square area?

The Flamingo marquee can be glimpsed on this postcard, just a few storefronts past the Carib.

Yep, that’s the Flamingo. It’s now a very cool nightclub called “Set” operated by the same company that operates “Mansion” in the former Cinema Theatre.

Couple of current interior photos…

You know, it’s really hard to believe that someone didn’t have the forethought to photograph the lobbys of all these theatres.

This was the home of I AM CURIOUS (YELLOW) in the late sixties, a film the Miami Herald refused advertising for. It ran here for several months and then moved to the North Miami by which time the Herald agrred to allow a one inch by one column ad with the title and the X rating. It was operated by Brandt who also ran the Cinema, PLaza Art, Beach and Lincoln at the time.
