“Small, quaint, and not just Hollywood -”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

If you want to see a great documentary, think about an important issue of modern day, learn about something you would not see anywhere in a large theatre, award winning documentary and the best part to compliment would be the actual address of a relevant speaker.. I attended "Ingredients" which was a short documentary about healthy foods available at Farmers Markets and the need to save responsible farming. The biggest factor being that Ben Cohen, of Ben and Jerry's, attended and shared his pro active actions. I realized - we need to pay more attention to issues of environment etc. - Cinemateque offers movies and speakers on ISSUES and RELEVANCE. Enjoy.

“A must for independent film lovers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

So glad the Cinemathique is there. It seems underutilized by residents of miami beach. But they have an exciting, eclectic collection of independent films. The atmosphere is what you would expect of serious independent film buffs. The building itself is awesome.

“Great setting, great Movies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Thank you Miami Beach. Keep this great tradition alive. Located in the heart of South Beach in the old City Hall, the Cinematheque plays movies and documentaries that the Multiplex won't show
