Former Plaza Art Theatre Location

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This was a rather ugly theatre just up the street from the beautiful Cinema Theatre. Built approximately in the early 60’s this theatre was part of the Brandt chain, who also at the time ran several theatres on Miami Beach. It was a small theatre, rather long and narrow with an aisle running down the left side of the theatre.

It shuttered sometime in the mid-70s. This house has been turned into an Irish pub.

this was the worst theatre in the world. Uncomforable seats. It was also a hangout for the elderly to get out of the heat. I think it was a department store at one time…and a bank.

I believe the Plaza Art was indeed a bank and returned to being a bank after it closed. Woody, your photo above looks like the Plaza Art.

The “ugly” little PLAZA ART gets a plug in a New York Times half-page ad for I, A WOMAN, apparently the opening feature on March 31, 1966.

The Plaza Art reportedly had front doors taken from the Paramount in New York after it closed. It closed as a movie theatre in 1976.
