Regal Cinemas South Beach 18 Theater

The Regal Cinemas South Beach 18 opened June 16, 1999 with a total of 2,799 seats. High quality, great location. In the heart of South Beach on the corner of Lincoln Road and Alton Road. Walking distance from many great restaurants and five-star hotels. If you’re on vacation in South Beach and want to go see a movie then Regal South Beach 18 is the movie theater for you.

I can’t believe this theater doesn’t do well. Same goes for Shadowwoods in Boca

They are simply escaping leasing agreements that aren’t favorable in bankruptcy to try and pay their bills.

The theatre was slow today on a Friday matinee. The cashier didn’t even know that the theatre might be closing. Added photos to the photos section.

Once Regal closes its doors, that will leave O Cinema as the sole film venue on the beach from an era when there were 12 to 14 movie houses at the peak on Miami Beach proper.

Well, the good news is that this theater, and a few others from the aforementioned list, has been spared for the time being.

Back in the 2000’s, before or after seeing a film at the Regal South Beach, I used to get coffee and sometimes a sandwich at what may have been called Cafe Del Moro at the far end of the lobby that felt separate from any of the concessions. Across from this a door opened onto an outdoor patio, where I would head out to what felt like a balcony overlooking the Lincoln Road pedestrian mall stretching east into the distance, where I’d stand for a while contemplating the view, and people-watching from above. (There was also a similar patio on the third floor from which I would do the same thing.)

Most often I would make the trip over to the Regal South Beach for film festivals, though a couple times I went for releases that within the county were only playing there. The one I remember is “Shadow Magic”, a drama set in 1902 about the introduction of motion pictures to China.

The cafe space closed years ago, and its empty structure was still dormant, when I stopped going to the Regal South Beach mostly because it seemed the Miami Film Festival was no longer using it as a venue once the Silverspot Cinemas Metsquare in downtown Miami opened in 2018.

The last times I visited the doors to the patios were locked on both floors, making my favorite thing about this cinema inaccessible, (though online photos show they later reopened).

I hadn’t a reason to go back since, but felt nostalgic for these nuances when I saw a headline in the Miami Herald stating it will be closing.

The person at the far end of the lobby in this photo is sitting at something new where Cafe Del Moro used to be.

A photo from Google Maps shows the second floor patio/defunct cafe became the “Regal VIP” area since I had last been there.

Here is the edge of the patio from which I’d gaze down upon Lincoln Road.

When gazing down upon Lincoln Road from the patios, the closest building below was the Colony Theatre, with its white neon marquee lit up at night.

In the 1990’s, before the Regal South Beach opened, I would make the trip over to Lincoln Road to visit the Alliance Cinema before the Regal probably contributed to its closure.

I wish there were a photo posted from the point of view of someone gazing down upon Lincoln Road from the patios/balconies, as I mention in my comment from February 18th, 2023, to better illustrate what I am describing.
