“When Movie Theaters were "Palaces"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Gusman/Olympia is a restored movie theater that dates back to 1926.Now, primarily a venue for live performances, it is worth while to allow some time to take in and appreciate the lavish architectural detail

“A Perfect Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Located on the Campus of The University of Miami this venue is small (capacity around 1,000) and the acoustics are perfect. Saw a performance last night and found it to be roomy and comfortable. Right now there is construction all around that area of UM's Campus so parking can be challenging, but the venue is a delight.
