The Van Gogh Immersive Experience was fantastic, mind blowing, unforgettable! I didn’t want to leave. In addition, the Olympia Theater was fascinating and gorgeous. What a treasure! I would love to have a tour and learn more about the history of the place.

Beautiful theater!!! I was there on 11/25 to visit the Van Gogh immersive exhibit and it was all so stunning!! One of the coolest most peaceful places I’ve been to. The projections of his art work were magnificent and the music went perfect. I had the chance to do the VR experience as well also very cool! And also color my own rendition of a Van Gogh painting would recommend if you are into art or want to try something different with friends, family, or even solo.

We traveled to Miami for the Van Gogh Immersive Experience to find that the projection theater was not working so we missed the biggest part of the exhibit. The ticketing agency, Fever, refunded our ticket price, but would not issue a rain check to attend the exhibit at another date, if our schedule allowed. We have decided not to purchase tickets again, incur travel expenses back to Miami, just to be disappointed again. Additionally, when we arrived at the Olympia Theater for our 2:00 pm entrance, we were not notified that the immersive projection equipment experienced technical issues prior to our arrival. Truly disappointed with the Olympia Theater's inability to deal with customers when the exhibition crashed, but more so with Fever's customer service.

We were in Miami and had the opportunity to get tickets to The Van Gogh Experience in the Olympia Theater. We enjoyed walking through the Art and learning the history of the Artist.

Theater setup spacious interactive Van Gogh exhibition. There is a clean unisex restroom hidden downstairs @ the front of the exhibitions; informative film about famous artist before entering the large immersive exhibition & virtual tour of his travel in Ireland upstairs above the gift shop. Face masks are optional for visitors.

Gem of a theater in the heart of downtown Miami dating back 100 years. Originally designed as a theater for silent films. The theater now hosts an array of musical performances, plays, film festivals, and comedy shows. Exquisite architecture and interior designs featuring red velvet theater seating and Moorish inspired hand-painted moldings and arches throughout. Highly recommended.

What a fabulous theater! Taken back in time by the music and surroundings - a great experience all round.
The decor is incredible inside and outside the auditorium and well worth a visit when you're in the area 😎

The design of the theatre was amazing. We were expecting a professional showcase but it was more of a high school play. All except for Quasimodo.

What a hidden gem in Miami. If visiting Miami, stop and catch a concert or movie. Worth the trip. Beautiful decor and a little piece of Miami history!
