City-Owned Cultural Facilties

Colony Theater

Organizational Background

The Colony Theatre is a city-owned 1935 historic building located on Lincoln Road. A number of renovations over the years have transformed the Colony into a 417-seat theater for live stage performance. The last such renovation ($6.5M) was in 2006. Since 2016, the Colony Theatre has been managed and operated by Miami New Drama, a Miami Beach Cultural Anchor with a mission of developing diverse, relevant new plays and musicals in conversation with the community. Under Miami New Drama's management, the Colony Theater welcomes over 40,000 people annually, including thousands of Miami-Dade County students.
