As Miami changes so does The Trail Theater’s purposeMiami’s Community Newspapers #Coral_GablesFebruary 12, 2019
It seems that the movie theater or cinema is the place to shut out the world for around two hours and slip into a new world — of light sabers and of talking lions.
Zmny of these movie theaters in Miami have gone into oblivion, but others have been repurposed serving a variety of other uses from presenting clssic cinem to live theater, from night clubs to recital halls.
Other sources indicate that the movie house did not open until 1948 when the Claughton family funded its opening.
Armando Roblan wrote, directed and performed in weekly productions designed to make audiences laugh at Cuba’s dictator.
People loved the shows.
Gone are the first run movies, but the theater has a new aim.
Bringing a smile “is the least we could do for the people who come here,” said Maria Jose Navarrete, concession manager.
The Teatro Trail has become a family for the staff and they aim to make it rub off on all who enter.
