“Beautiful old theater”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went to see Otmar Liebert in this gorgeous old structure originally called the Olympia Theater in the heart of downtown Miami steps from Bayside Park. Be sure to eat before you arrive since there are mostly fast food joints nearby. Acoustics are great and the seats comfortable. The interior is clean, freshly painted and beautiful.

“When Movie Theaters were "Palaces"”
5 of 5 bubbles 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

Convienent location in the downtown are of Miami. The theater/building has been an icon of the downtown for a very long time. It was renovated many years ago to keep it thriving.
