The Coleman Theatre has been catching the eye of visitors on Route 66 since 1929. Built as a vaudeville theater and movie palace it hosted appearances by many early stars including Will Rogers, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. The historic structure was donated to the city of Miami by the Coleman family in 1989. It has been restored to its original style including the return of the "Mighty Wurlitzer" pipe organ. Today, the theatre hosts ballets, theatre performances, receptions, conferences and silent movies.
