The Miami Beach Cinematheque, Miami’s premier art house cinema, recently relocated to Miami Beach City Hall (1130 Washington Avenue, 1st floor) after spending eight years at its original Española Way location on South Beach. MBC’s new sustainable home features high-definition digital projection with Bose surround sound, 75 plush stadium-style seats, a photographic arts gallery, gourmet concession stands featuring the new MBC line of baked goods and Nespresso coffees, and unique programming throughout the year including screenings of Oscar® winning and nominated films in many categories. MBC is the only officially sanctioned beneficiary of the Miami Oscar Night® America.

Oscar Night® America, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ grassroots program, enables local charities to be the official hosts of glamorous Oscar® viewing parties across the country. Since its inception in 1994, Oscar Night® America has generated funding for a wide spectrum of charitable organizations — every cent staying within the community where it was raised, none of it going to the Academy. ONA, now in its second decade, has raised nearly $17.5 million for charities throughout the United States.

The Dezer Collection Museum, founded by prominent New York/South Florida developer and collector Michael Dezer, features more than 1,000 of the most unique and eclectic vehicles held in any private collection in the world.
