Norwest 1 & 2 Theatres Demolished
DETROIT, MI — The Norwest 1 & 2 was torn down this week to make way for two new fast food restaurants, according to the Detroit Free Press. One man comments in the piece, “You used to be able to walk to get your groceries and walk for a movie. But every piece of good is being torn down for fast food and strip malls. It’s just disappointing.”
The Norwest Theater opened in 1936, was twinned in the 1980s and closed in 2000. As Thomasina Aquinas notes, there is a picture of the half-demolished Norwest at www.detroityes.com.
