A cultural gem since it first opened on Aragon Avenue, our beloved Art Cinema has been a stalwart partner...and an anchor of our cultural corridor in the Gables.
As the City's Mayor who oversaw the construction and dedication of the Cinema, I am personally proud of the important role it has come to play in the cultural life of Coral Gables.
As a documentary filmmaker, I have screened two films at the Art Cinema and know firsthand what a valuable cultural asset it is to both the filmmaking and the film viewing community.
Adding (the expansion) is a no-brainer, as it will allow the programming to expand and be more inclusive of various parts of the world...What's more, it will draw more people to the ...Miracle Mile area to create an uptick in sales for restaurants, shops, and galleries.
The Gables Cinema has quickly become one of the most important independent film venues in the country.
There's no other way to say it: this arthouse theater in the heart of Coral Gables is a treasure. Just this year(2018), they've shown a 70 mm, 50th-anniversary screening of 2001: A Space ...Odyssey and hosted the International Children's Festival as well as a two-week long Pedro Almodóvar film retrospective. Coupling these special treats with their discounted After Hours series means you'll watch films at this theater that you might not otherwise see anywhere else in Miami.
The Cinema has been a great cultural venue and community gathering place... The organization has brought people from across South Florida to Coral Gables to experience the world of ... independent films, children's programming and more...
I just wanted to send a quick message from a personal note about how impressed I am with the movies you are offering! So many of them were up for Academy Awards and I’m just ... so happy they’re showing so I can go see them. What a cultural gem we have here in downtown Coral Gables!
