First opened in 1926, the Olympia Theater was originally a silent-movie palace. Nowadays, as it nears the finish of an extensive renovation, the handsome Miami venue primarily plays host to live theatricals, but the Gusman does still screen films on occasion. The theater’s original 3/15 Wurlitzer organ, built to offer full orchestral accompaniment for silent films, is one of only a handful still in existence.
