“South Florida Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

I have seen a few dozen performances/films at this theater dating back to my childhood. Most recently, the Film Festival (Juan of the Dead was awesome) and took my kid to see the Nutcracker. There is no more majestic theater in South Florida in my opinion. Sure there are bigger ones, and flashier ones even, but the Olympia/Gusman sends you back to another time when theater was a regal event. Comfortable seats, ample space, consistently great acoustics. The restoration, as has been noted by others, added the final polish to this gem. It won't be a hidden gem for long as people are already noticing.
