You would never know that there was such a treasure hidden behind the contemporary façade of this building. Opened in 1926 as a silent movie palace it has been beautifully restores. It is spell binding with stunning Moorish architecture, perfect acoustics and a simulated night sky, complete with wafting clouds and twinkling stars. I just love any opportunity to visit... More

The Olympia has been beautifully restored and it is a beautiful theater. Have gone several times to see first run International movies and music shows, even though it is in the downtown area it is easy to get to and parking is close by

Majestic turrets and towers suggest another era when performances were events, and grand theaters provided a dreamlike escape from the modern world. The Olympia Theater at Gusman Center is not just a “venue” – it’s is the jewel of South Florida arts and entertainment... More

What a fabulous theatre. The show I went to see was Tommy Emmanuel and Martin Taylor and the sound was excellent. Inside, around the stage was decorated as a baroque/Mediterranean style. The location is good on Flagler Street, with car parks near by. I was in town at 3pm and used a car lot on 2 Street, had something to... More

Small and beautiful theater in downtown ,no parking though . Parking around downtown is expensive, and at night could be very desolate . Always be aware!
