I believe this link has video of the Palace. I’ve reached my limit of free Tribune articles for the month… If it is the wrong Palace Theatre, let me know in a comment and I’ll delete it and add it where it belongs.

Ah, I see what you are saying. The marquee looked wider than that to me, but you are probably correct.

The current street view shows the entrance area has been split into 3 separate storefronts. It appears they kept whatever original pitched entryway the theatre had, on two of the storefronts. The third had it’s interior space extended out to the sidewalk border.

DavidZornig commented about Azteca Theatre on Mar 9, 2018 at 8:48 pm

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.
