This intimate, historic theatre was recently restored and reopened after nearly 40 years of vacancy. The historic structure, originally built in 1921, was first restored in 1940 with the iconic Art Deco façade you see today. The theatre, a central part of Homestead’s social life, was mainly used as a movie house until it closed its doors in 1979. In 1992, it suffered a near total loss as a result of Hurricane Andrew. In an attempt to salvage the historic property, citizen groups embarked on a renovation effort that would span decades. Funding for the Seminole Theatre restoration was made possible thanks to the citizens of Homestead. During the decisive May 2014 Bond Referendum, 64-percent voted in favor of the $5 million bond to renovate the Historic Seminole Theatre as a cultural center.
