DavidZornig commented about Azteca Theatre on Mar 10, 2018 at 4:48 am

1951 photo added. “El Papelerito” on the poster was released October 25, 1951. So the 1939 close date is incorrect. Below copy accompanied the photo. The Brooklyn Theatre, later renamed the Azteca Theatre, once stood on the northwest corner of Brooklyn Street and Michigan Avenue. It specialized in Spanish language films after Corktown gained an influx of Mexican immigrants. It was demolished around the 1950s.

This photo appears in “Detroit’s Corktown” by Armando Delicato and Julie Demery, and was originally from the Burton Historical Collection, Detroit Public Library. Via the Corktown Historical Society.

DavidZornig commented about Orpheum Theatre on Mar 9, 2018 at 4:06 pm

Four images of the Orpheum Theatre added. The marquee appears to have been added before the `40s. The Garden Theatre is visible on the left in three of them, and was a much larger structure whose marquee appears to have been there since the beginning. I will now add a CT page for the Garden Theatre. This was Ingham County in Lansing Michigan.
