LINCOLN PARK, MI — Sunday’s News Herald newspaper revealed that the Park Theater was donated to non-profit organization Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency. Plans are for the historic theater to be replaced with a mixed use development.

The Park Theater, c. 1925, was designed by C. Howard Crane. The Fort Street facade was changed to a Streamline Moderne facade in 1936. It is believed that the architect of that design was Charles Agree.

More info on the recent news can be obtained at the News Herald.

In recent years the theater was an adult entertainment facility until it’s closing early this year.
