I hope this Miami landmark stays here forever - it's a wonderful place for concerts, shows, and anything else. Parking is an issue as there is very, very little street... More

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

Tucked into Miami’s contemporary skyline is an enchanting Mediterranean courtyard with shimmering stars and golden balconies. 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
