The stunning Colony Theater is fully deserving of its status as a landmark in the National Register of Historic Places, as anyone who spots it along Lincoln Road in Miami Beach can attest. Designed in the distinctive Art Deco style and opened in 1934 as a Paramount Pictures movie house, the Colony has functioned primarily as a live-performance space since 1986. However, motion pictures are sometimes screened here and cinema enthusiasts will delight in visiting the beautiful Colony on those occasions: The theater was renovated recently, resulting in an enlarged state-of-the-art interior and a restoration of the façade and lobby’s original Art Deco grandeur.
