Blast from the past; Coral Gables short from 50 years ago

After fifty years, a black and white view of shopping in Coral Gables hits the big screen as a short trailer before the main attraction, a Woody Allen movie, at Gables Cinema. This short black and white film, produced by the City of Coral Gables in the early 1960s, was recently donated to the Wolfson Archives by the City of Coral Gables. 

Intended as a TV commercial, the untitled film touts the delights of back-to-school shopping in Coral Gables with wide shots of Miracle Mile and up-close images of shoppers browsing for school clothes, books, typewriters and slide rules, enjoying what the narrator calls "...shopping at its unhurried best." 

The monochrome movie starts a two-week run on the big screen of the Coral Gables Art Cinema on Friday, August 8, playing as a short before the Cinema's main feature, Woody Allen's latest film, Magic In The Moonlight. It's a wonderful blast from the past for those that remember the Mile when Baby Boomers were babies. 

Woody Allen, fresh off his mega-hit Blue Jasmine, returns to the Gables Cinema this Friday, August 8, with his latest, Magic in the Moonlight. Set in the south of France during the 1920s, this romantic comedy with a "supernatural twist" tells the story of a master magician trying to expose a psychic medium as a fake. Magic in the Moonlight has a star-studded cast that includes Academy Award-winners Colin Firth (The King's Speech) and Marcia Gay Harden (Pollock), Academy Award-nominee Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook) and the vivacious Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man). 

Tickets are $11.50 and under and are available in advance through the Cinema's website and in person at the box office during regular screening hours. Coral Gables Art Cinema is located at 260 Aragon, directly across from Books & Books. Call 786-385-9689 or visit the web site for showtimes at gablescinema.org
