A self standing theatre, this location may have started out as a playhouse since it’s awkwardly uncentered projection booth seemed like an afterthought. The North Miami Theatre began screening movies on May 5, 1949 with John Wayne in “3 Godfathers” and is listed as open in the 1950 edition of Film Daily Yearbook.
A discount house in it’s latter days, the North Miami Theatre had an extended run of “I Am Curious (Yellow)” in the late-1960’s which was still a hit even though the Miami Herald refused to accept the advertisements. On November 6, 1970 it was renamed Southland Cinema.
Following its closure in 1986 it was gutted internally and converted into a medical center.
