The Flamingo Theatre opened on December 14, 1946 with Rex Harrison in “Blithe Spirit”. A rather smallish theatre (editions of Film Daily Yearbook don’t give a seating capacity) located on Lincoln Road between the Carib Theatre and the Beach Theatre. I remember it had a tiny lobby. The theatre which was run by Brandt Theaters played first run, foreign as well as American. I know “The Red Shoes” had a run there as well as “Diabolique”. In the 1950’s they showed classier MGM films like “Kiss Me Kate” and “Gigi” as well as films from Columbia Pictures. I believe I saw one of the Godfather films there.
With Lincoln Road going down hill in the late-1970’s, the theatre shuttered in May 1980 and the lobby area was converted in a luggage store sealing off the rest of the theatre. Since Lincoln Road has become upscale again, the building has been converted into a nightclub.
