Wometco’s recent acquisition of the Ace Theatre at Coconut Grove was noted in the November 19, 1938 issue of Boxoffice.

“Segregation-era movie theater in Coconut Grove wins national historic designation”

Cool, I’m glad it won’t be torn down and there are plans to do something with it.

I remember years ago being pleasantly surprised to find an old closed movie theater behind some trees that had grown enough at the time to obscure the Ace signs when I was driving past one day. I’ve since enjoyed glancing at it to see if anything had yet changed whenever I’ve been through the area.

According to The Miami Herald movie timeclock there was another Ace somewhere in Homestead from 1966-1973.

Then you should have written “…Your still off topic!”, otherwise you were paraphrasing and not quoting at all.

The description of this theatre fails to mention that it was built to service the Afro-Caribbean community of Coconut Grove and often ran stage shows along with the films. It operated from the mid-fifties through to the late seventies playing mostly late run double features.
