Thanks ken mc — Saw “Superman” at the Pompano Cinema (forgot there were no bargain matinees for that engagement). Three decades on, only the Riviera remains a (stage) theater.

Worth noting the Cutler Ridge Cinema was General Cinema’s lone venue in Dade County until the mid 1970s (when they acquired several Loews locations and began new construction), by which time dominant players Wometco and Florida State began to decline.

The rendering in the grand opening ad (Al, thanks for including that in your excellent photostream) looks about 90 percent identical to the Pompano Cinema (and probably most other GCC properties of the time.

Damage from Hurricane David (seen on TV) a year after closing sealed the theater’s fate.

I spent many a Saturday afternoon as a kid at the Cutler Ridge Cinema. I remember seeng “The Incredible Mister Limpet” with Don Knots there, for one. The last film that I saw there before moving away from Miami was “ET.” I have fond memories of the place.
