Great locals spot! Housed in the historic city hall on Washington next to the Miami Beach police dept building. Always playing art house films, indie style and independent or foreign films. Nice date night.

A bit expensive, but well worth a visit especially after a long days walking and now you can relax in a creative atmosphere.

Finally a locale in Miami where you can meet educated people with much to discuss and share. The theater is very intimate and very cozy. No alcohol unfortunately but very posh yet for a low cost.
