Miami Beach Cinematheque

This Miami Beach art house opened in 2003. It was located in a Mediterranean Revival style hotel at 512 Espanola Way, and had a seating capacity of around 50.

In 2011, it relocated to the former old Miami Beach City Hall building on Washington Avenue at 12th Street. It was taken over by O Cinema on August 1, 2019 and renamed O Cinema South Beach.

This is correct—they are now in the ‘OLD’ Historic Miami Beach City Hall that was restored and on Washington Ave (btw 11th & 12th) (as of March 2013)
