So glad the Cinemathique is there. It seems underutilized by residents of miami beach. But they have an exciting, eclectic collection of independent films. The atmosphere is what you would expect of serious independent film buffs. The building itself is awesome.

Very active cinematheque and fine place with bistro, books and photos. Classics films (Chaplin, Buster Keaton) and also the top production of the year (The beasts of southern wild).

Thank you Miami Beach. Keep this great tradition alive. Located in the heart of South Beach in the old City Hall, the Cinematheque plays movies and documentaries that the Multiplex won't show

Small theatre in Miami Beach that shows arthouse flicks. It's nice to be able to see these films that are hard to find anywhere else in the whole Miami area.

This is a warm, comfortable, stylish place to see unusual films, often introduced by the movie's producer or director, or at least the very knowledgeable director of the Cinemateque. Movie lovers' treat on Washington Ave in the old City Hall building.

So not commercial, it is a refreshing break form the typical South Beach attractions. Always something 'different' to see and it is a beautiful building and a cool experience. A nice break from the kitch and glam of the area
