Indie film lovers flock to Miami’s O Cinemas to catch a glimpse of the extraordinary. You won’t always find major blockbusters on the line-up, but you will find a reliable assortment of brilliant independent flicks. You’ll feel marvelously civilized ordering a glass of wine and a nibble at the snack bar, before settling in to watch the big screen.

O features first-run independent, foreign, and art films, and has three outposts throughout the Miami area: Wynwood, Miami Shores, and North Beach — a neighborhood that seems to be just finding its legs and could only benefit from the kinds of interesting events an indie theater will bring.

Pro tip: At the North Beach venue, head upstairs to the theater’s upper level for the best, unobstructed views.
