Miami Beach, FL: O Cinema Miami Beach Closed

Posted on Tuesday, November 5th, 2019 and updated on Friday, November 22nd, 2019 1:35 PM

The O Cinema Miami Beach in Miami Beach, Florida has closed. The last time we received showtimes updates was on October 31, 2019.

According to an article published in August in RE:MiamiBeach, the city of Miami Beach decided not to renew the theater's lease of the building, due to extensive repairs needed on the building:

Due to the high cost of making repairs to the Byron Carlyle Theater, the City will not renew O Cinema’s lease when it expires at the end of October. The deteriorating condition of the building has been widely discussed and debated by Miami Beach Commissioners who learned last Fall that the cost of addressing deferred maintenance items as well as repairs needed for the building’s 50-year recertification totaled approximately $3.2 million.

Commissioners decided to allow O Cinema to complete their current lease expiring October 31, 2019 with an option to renew on a month to month basis “contingent upon the building being brought up to current building code standards and the required repairs described in the 50-year recertification,” according to a Letter to Commission from City Manager Jimmy Morales notifying them of the non-renewal.

O Cinema still operates the O Cinema South Beach, which is located about five miles away. Additionally, moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Regal South Beach Stadium 18 and the iPic Theaters - North Miami Beach.
