Opened on April 18, 1929 with Ruth Chatterton in “The Dummy”, plus 5 acts of Senior Orpheum Vaudeville on the stage. The Coleman Theatre was initially used for movies and vaudeville. It was equipped with a Wurlitzer 3 manual, 13 ranks theatre pipe organ which was opened by organist Owen James.
In 1989, the Coleman family donated the theatre to the City of Miami under the condition that it be restored and used as a performing arts center. The Wurlitzer organ was refurbished and returned to the theatre in 1996 to be opened by organist Lyn Larsen.
