William Goldman opened the North Side Theatre on January 31, 1968 with Spencer Tracy in “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”. This luxurious single screen theatre next to the busy North Side Shopping Mall. It was twinned on October 14, 1970. The neighborhood quickly changed and the theatre was probably too large to serve the eventual predominantly African American audience.
This theatre was the only South Florida house that played hit first-runs on double feature in a desperate attempt to fill the house. This theatre had the exclusive Miami run of “Sweet Sweetback’s Baadaasss Song” since downtown houses refused to show it for fear of rioting. It had closed by 1984.
