Inscription. The Seminole Theater has been designated a City of Homestead Historic Landmark

This building, originally constructed in 1921, was subsequently restored in 1940 with an Art Deco facade following a devastating fire. The theatre was mainly used as a movie house until it closed its doors following a near total loss as a result of Hurricane Andrew. Subsequent expansion includes addition of a north wing and a south building.
