The Biscayne Twin cinema opened on June 13th, 1980 with “Mary Poppins” and “Roadie”. Grand opening ad posted.

This theater did eventually get its print of “Flash Gordon” I saw it there repeatedly and this location was not a bad venue for a bargain house albeit a very short lived one.

Google Maps still indicates it’s a gym — the same fate as the former 170th Street in Sunny Isles.

The theater was built inside the building that once housed a Polly Davis/St. Clair’s/David’s cafeteria. It later was Kaufman and Roberts. Kaufman and Roberts were a clone of the popular “Kennedy and Cohen” appliance stores – and used a similar marketing strategy of one Jewish and one Irish name as supposed “partners”.

When that firm went under, a gym opened up inside the building.

Prior to the theater, an Italian restaurant called “The Spaghetti Bowl” was planned, but never opened.

The Biscayne Twin operated in 1980-1981 as a first run location. I remember seeing a weird little movie called “HAPPY BIRTHDAY,GEMINI” which starred Madeline Kahn and Rita Moreno and had its exclusive Miami run here.

I also remember The theatre failed to provide the advance required for “FLASH GORDON”, their Christmas 1980 film, and Universal did not deliver their print.
