I have a snapshot of Woodward Avenue showing a theatre just past John R Street (on the right) with the Fox Theatre tower in the distance (on the left). From the look of the cars, etc. I would date the photo in the 1940’s. The three lines of words on the marquee are not readable. Is it possible this theatre showed foreign or ethnic films? The name of the theatre is not readable, but there seems to be a letter “C” in it. This definately matches the location and the building. Is it possible the theatre was reopened after the 1930 closing?
