Miami’s Beloved Cultural Center Since 1926

Tucked into Miami’s contemporary skyline is an enchanting Mediterranean courtyard with shimmering stars and golden balconies. Majestic turrets and towers suggest another era when performances were events, and grand theaters provided a dreamlike escape from the modern world.

The Olympia Theater at the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts is not just a venue is the jewel of South Florida arts and entertainment facilities, affording South Florida’s diverse community and its international guests a unique cultural experience that defies comparison.

This theater is such an exquisite work of art in itself. The details in the ceilings, the sculptures, the woodwork - I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to visit it for the first time just recently. However, I do want to go back very soon. There is one particular surprise you get once you're seated and look above you! It's so pleasing to the eyes! I also want to commend their very attentive, polite and professional staff. Their efficiency throughout the event was without a doubt surprising in its own!

An absolute landmark! Elvis performed here 15 times! For almost 100 years the Olympia Theater has been an integral part of our beautiful city. It's a Treasure!

Beautiful old small theater tucked in the middle of downtown Miami. A cheaper balcony seat still afforded me a good view. Very easy walk from train station.

A historic theatre with beautiful decor and a hidden Miami gem. We were there last night for the Miami Film Festival. Great view from any seat. Bring a sweater as it can get chilly. Worth the visit!!

Audience members are taking pictures with flash, phones ringing, having full on conversations, eating POPCORN loudly (was I at the circus or a professional dance performance?), and are allowed to find their seats at any time during the performance, just walking around aimlessly shining their phones on everyone. So disrespectful to the other audience members and especially performers; ushers clearly aren't doing their job and Miamians seemingly have no sense of basic etiquette. Building is beautiful but who wants to pay those prices when you can't enjoy the performance.
