This will take you to a file of a few photos I took April 24, 2009 of the buiiding. Also check out the other photo sets I have, I have some other Detroit area theatres.
I think this was a Pussycat Theatre when I lived there in 1981.
This should take you to a photo of AL Parker in front of the theatre, for his premiere Flashback.
Great pics, always makes me a little homesick.
New interior pictures hit link in above box.
I think the last 70MM film I saw was Temple Of Doom, the second Indiana Jones, when it was released in 1984.
I will attend as much as possible, living in Michigan, its not like ‘just down the block.’ Hope its a success !
This should take you to some photos.
The original theatre, screen #1 at Studio 28 was also equipped to run 70MM. They had a special Breakfast Club 70MM showing in 86 or 87, a chairty showing. Eastbrook was awesome until it was split.
Very interesting ! I like to look at them all, read about the theatre etc. You re doing a great job on this. I live between Chicago and Detroit in Michigan, and I also, am looking forward to the Detroit segment on Cinerama.
And did Grand Rapids ever have a Cinerama for a short time ( like no more than 2-3 years)in the 50s when it came out, in an old downtown creeky filthy theatre? I had been told, but I can not find any information about it. And they could of been mistaken and ment CinemaSCOPE, also, having to do with a large screen. CHEERS.
this will take you to a file on the Studio 28, I will be taking more photos tonight, the last night, and posting more.
thsi link will take you to my Flickr file on the Riviera. Will be updated regularly.
This theatre used to play alternative and foreign films, I attened as offten as I could, I do not live in GR is why.Theatre #1 is a 1000 seat HUGE curved screen, THX. Im really sad this special place will go, the rest of the 19 theatres are just average, nothing special, but this started it off. I saw Titanic 3 times on it, was worth the drive.
Nov. 23, 2008 will be the last day of operation of this theatre.
Cheers to the Studio 28, you will be missed, especially theatre #1.
I am going this next week, Ill get some photos and post them.
I loved working at this theatre, and the Paramount (El Cap) also.
So sad, the graffiti must go. Has any work happened to this theatre yet?
Excellent photos !! Ill take a small apartment on the second floor in the SW corner. I just have myself and my Yorkie, Motown. I always get ‘home sick’ when I see Hollywood photos. Long live the Warner Pacific Hollywood.
Beautiful ! Very nice.

Is this the same AERO theatre shown in the movie DONNIE DARKO?
