As we celebrate Miami Beach’s centennial, embrace the Magic City’s rich past at a special screening of The Fontainebleau on Film. Experience the rise and fall of this symbol of glamour, and learn how the hotel has maintained its air of elegance while also adapting to modern times and technology.
The Fountainbleau is a Miami Beach institution. Since 1954, the hotel has served as a luxurious epicenter of Miami Beach culture, earning a spot on the list of “America’s Favorite Architecture” by the American Institute of Architects in 2007.
Rene Ramos and film critic and archivist Kevin Wynn will host the screening and show clips from the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives.
The Fontainebleau on Film is presented in part by Dade Heritage Days and the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs. The screening will take place Friday at 7 p.m. in the Wolfson Archives at Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus at 300 NE Second Ave., Room 8401, Miami. Admission is free, and light refreshments will be served.
