Roadside Florida: Miami Beach Hotels
by Lynn and Louis Wolfson II & Florida Moving Image Archives


Check into the Miami Beach Cinematheque and get ready to explore the style and stories of Miami Beach’s famous hotels!

From the glamorous hotels of Collins Avenue to the funky motels of Sunny Isles, you’ll travel back in time to the glittering heyday of the Billion Dollar Sandbar. 

Writer and history consultant Sylvia Gurinsky is your guide through three phases of Miami Beach hotel style: Mediterranean Revival, Art Deco and MiMo, revealing each period through vintage film and video from the Wolfson Archives.

It’s a fun and fascinating trip featuring vintage views of such Miami Beach landmarks as the Roney Plaza, the MacFadden-Deauville, the Cardozo, the Essex House, the Castaways, the Eden Roc and the Americana.

Admission to “Roadside Florida: Miami Beach Hotels" is free and the event is open to the public.

“Roadside Florida: Miami Beach Hotels" is a co-presentation of the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives at Miami Dade College and the Miami Beach Cinematheque.
