Here’s a great new amenity to look for at Miami International Airport:
Rather than rip out some outdated flight display monitors, MIA is using them to play vintage film clips starring the airport from the 1950s and 1960s; celebrities arriving at the airport from the 1950s to the 1980s; home movies filmed in Miami between the 1920s and 1960s; and the 1940s promotional film Florida: Land of Perpetual Sunshine.
The clips come courtesy of the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives at Miami Dade College, which also has an extensive Eastern Airlines collection.
