DETROIT, MI — A suspected arson fire has destroyed the apartments portion of the long abandoned Eastown Theatre. As a result, what’s left of the building is expected to be torn down. Photos and video of the aftermath can be found from DetroitFunk.com as well as at DetroitFiregroundimages.com
Further details are in the Examiner.

After its days as a movie theater ended, the Eastown was best known as a rock concert venue in the 1970s. This is a sad loss for what was once a gorgeous Cinema Treasure serving the east side of Detroit.

From the looks of these pics and from what I heard? The end for this theatre came a LONG time ago.
