Miami Beach is about to get a piece of this city's thriving indie cinema scene. The award-winning O Cinema will open a third location in North Beach this fall.

The third art-house community-focused cinema was approved unanimously this morning by the City of Miami Beach Mayor and City Commissioners, who voted for O to take over management of the Byron-Carlyle Theater. O Cinema's Kareem Tabsch told New Times the city's quick work on the process was a pleasant surprise.
"We've been in discussion with the city of Miami Beach for a few months now," Tabsch said. "It's a theater we've always loved...I have to say...It's a new day at the City of Miami Beach, the current administration and staff work really well; the support and dedication has been outstanding. I didn't think it would happen this quickly."More »
