The Tower Theater in Little Havana is one of the oldest cultural landmarks in the city. It was built in 1926, and was regarded as one of the greatest movie theaters in the South. When an influx of Cuban immigrants came to Miami in the 1960s, the Tower Theater began showing films with Spanish subtitles and eventually Spanish language films. it was closed in 1984, but reopened in 2002 under the management of Miami Dade College. It now serves as a community gathering place for cultural exhibitions, free lectures by college faculty and plays both English and Spanish language films.
