There are many more photos at “The Fabulous Ruins of Detroit.

The photo of the United Artists Theatre is haunting and incredibly sad.

The Michigan Theatre was gutted and turned into a parking garage in 1976.

The images are staggering, it’s hard to believe that such a thing could be allowed to happen.
I don’t know what more to say, just go the above mentioned site.

Heartbreaking. I was only in Detroit a couple of times, years ago, so my memories are unfortunately scant. I’ve been told it was one of the greatest of downtowns, and richer in theaters than you can imagine. I learned years after the fact that the one theater I was in, for the initial run of “2001”, was the Summit.
