The Olympia Theater is the most beautiful theater in Miami. The unique architectural style will keep you wondering around, even during a play or concert. It is conveniently located on Downtown Miami Flagler Street. Parking can be difficult at times.

The Olympia Theater is an historic site in downtown Miami. The décor inside is unbelievable for going on 100 years old. Should you have an opportunity to go, do it!

I went to see the Carl Palmer ELP Legacy show "Tribute to Keith Emerson" there and the staff were amazing! the Guzman is just amazing with such spectacular architectural detail and the acoustics were phenomenal. It is like steeping back in to the Golden Age of Theatre! Not a lot of places eat nearby, so eat before heading over there.....

The first time I went there I swore I would never return because of the seating. I ended up there again with friends not realizing the event we booked was there. The seats are atrocious, they are tiny and made me feel trapped. I go to many events and arenas and I have never felt like this before. They need... More
