One of the many theatres located on Flagler Street, across from from the Olympia Theatre (now the Gusman Center). This originally opened as the Hippodrome Theatre from around 1915, and was the second theatre with that name built in downtown Miami. It was closed in 1930, and became the Rex Theatre in 1931. It was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary E.J. Sparkes. It was closed and remodeled into the Florida Theatre in 1948 by the Jacksonville based architectural firm Kemp, Bunch & Jackson..
I remember seeing “Rosemary’s Baby” at this theatre. Unfortunately I can’t remember what the inside of the theatre looked like. I believe this theatre played some Cinerama travelogues, but by that time I had left the city.
