Tower Theater

1508 SW 8th St.
Miami, FL 33135
Best Of
A historical jewel, the preserved Art Deco Tower Theatre is located on Little Havana's Calle Ocho. One of the oldest Miami landmarks, the theatre first opened in 1926, and after years of serving the surrounding communities, it was closed to the public in 1984. Thanks to Miami Dade College and the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, the theater has reopened its doors to cinephiles eager to take in popular movies, as well as independent and foreign features. There is a concession stand to satisfy any prescreening cravings. Tower Theatre can be rented for special events.
