Mission: The miami beach film society supports the miami beach cinematheque whose mission is to present, promote, preserve and create cinema as an art-form (as well as its related components such as new digital media, photographic arts and video). The miami beach cinematheque is located in the historic city hall of miami beach built by pioneer carl fisher in 1927. The spanish mediterranean revival ground floor space was restored and re-designed as the cinematheque by the miami beach film socitey, architect scott weinkle, and interior designer jeffrey barone. In 2010, the cinematheque moved from its eight year home on espanola way. It is the central cultural anchor on south beach for the photographic arts, with a state of the art auditorium for digital presentations, a gallery and archive and soon-to-open outdoor cafe.
Programs: Provided cultural, educational and alternative movies to the general public.
