Miami Beach Cinematheque is a small indie movie theater located off the first floor lobby of the historic old Miami Beach City Hall at 1100 Washington Ave in South Beach. As a bonafide artsy-fartsy film-geek, I've attended this theater ever since it was at its older & smaller location on Espanola Way. Don't get me wrong, I luv the multiplex too, but places like this are needed to show films that never make it into multiplexes. They offer memberships that entitle you to $2 discounts on tkts, but even if you don't join, & even if you like mainstream multiplex movies, you can still find compelling & interesting cinematic experiences here. There's only one screen, & the audience is always small ... so small, in fact, that I often wonder how this place stays in business. I would urge anyone who cares about the future of cinema as an art-form as opposed to just a series of money-making franchises to support this place & attend some screenings at Miami Beach Cinematheque. It would be a shame if one of the few independent film venues left in this country weren't around anymore.
