a part of ‘The Sunrise Cinemas’ which are great for indies and foreign film.
Recently saw ‘Apres Vous’ with Daniel Autueil here.

I just combed through the text on this page and could not find a single instance in which “Intracoastal” was mispelled, so I can’t see the relevance of your post.

The actual address according to their website and Google Maps is 3701 NE 163rd Street, North Miami Beach, FL 33160.

The theater is operating yet is still not listed in the Miami Herald’s movie times though it used to be under previous owners/names.

There used to be about 12 Movie Theaters in North Miami Beach. This is one of the few that remain open. Overall it is a nice facility with ample parking. 5 Stars. By Gregg L. Friedman MD

The Intracoastal Mall on the waterfront of North Miami Beach opened in 1987 with discount clothing chains T.J. Maxx and Marshall’s, grocer Winn-Dixie, and a General Cinema multiplex theater as its anchors. Restaurants included Shooters and a Ruth Chris Steak House. The General Cinema Intracoastal 8 launched with “Orphans,” “Deadline,” “Killing Time,” “When You Were Here,” “Dirty Dancing,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” and “The Sicilian” on October 23, 1987.

Ten years later, General Cinema was watching aggressive building of new destination theatre complexes in the “megaplex era” devour aging 6-8 screen multiplexes. Unfortunately for the circuit, they held a huge portfolio of such multiplexes and they witnessed their death in slow motion. GCC’s Intracoastal was the very definition of an aging and uncomfortable multiplex. The circuit closed all eleven of its remaining Florida locations on “(GCC) Black Friday” September 29, 2000 along with 13 others (five in Atlanta, three in New Orleans, as well as Seattle, Albuquerque, Houston, Raleigh and Columbus, Ohio).

On May 4, 2001, the venue was reopened as the Sunrise Intracoastal Cinemas 8. The venue featured independent films, international films, and hosted events including a question and answer with the director of “Play the Game” in 2009. Sunrise moved on in November of 2011. That same month, it was taken over as the Intracoastal Cinemas 8 operated by Frank Theatres. Frank also moved on as the theatre staggered, by all reviews, toward its April 27, 2014 closure in need of repairs and air fresheners.

The theatre received a much-needed transformation in 2014 when Boca Raton-based iPic Theatres completely gutted the existing space and created a premium dining/bar/theatre experience with seating drastically reduced to just 50 to 90 seats per the eight auditoriums. The iPic North Miami Beach launched (deciding not to include “Intracoastal” for reasons unknown) on November 10, 2017. As the retail portion of the Intracoastal Mall staggered, an ambitious master plan was announced for the Mall that would turn it into a mixed used facility. The iPic North Miami Beach continued to operate as the plan was under consideration.
