News About This Theater
The landmark Colony Theatre on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach opened January 25, 1935, and was built for the Paramount Pictures Inc. chain and operated by their subsidiary S.A. Lynch. It was listed in 1950 with a seating capacity of 894. It is a glorious example of the Art Deco style, and one of the city’s most well-known examples of that style of architecture.
After decades serving as a movie house, the Colony Theatre was renovated in 1976 for performing arts. It has been restored again since, most recently at a cost of over $1 million. It is now owned by the city of Miami Beach.
One of South Florida’s most popular entertainment venues, the Colony Theatre now hosts a wide variety of arts, such as concerts, dance, opera, comedy acts and film festivals, like the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival every March.
Recently, the Colony Cafe opened at the theatre, serving coffee, liquor and light fare, as well as live music.
