Miami’s historic Olympia Theater (built in 1926) stands across the street from the beautiful 1939 Alfred I. duPont building in downtown Miami, Florida, USA. This is the view of the Olympia from the duPont’s 2nd floor bank lobby.

The Olympia Theater has special meaning to me, having been a regular part of my life as a native South Floridian. I performed several times here as a child in the Miami Boys choir, and in high school as a sax player in a concert band. I saw movies here when it was still used as a movie theater in the 70’s. My high school had events at the Olympia, and I’ve attended concerts and performances here in the years since. In a all that time, this is the first time I’ve seen the Olympia from this vantage.
