This is from a 2004 article in the Bay-Journal:

Treasures Found Below Flooring of Old Westown Theater

“BAY CITY – It has been a long time since the old Westown Theater on Midland Street has been used as a movie house. The theater building is still entertaining customers today, but as the Westown Nightclub. However, a recent discovery has the owners excited about the movies that were once shown when it was a theater. Found below some old flooring was a stash of very old posters and films, all appear to be in excellent shape. A preliminary investigation indicates the treasure may have a value of several hundred thousand dollars to collectors. The owners may be offering a few of the items up for auction in November. Proceeds would be spent to cover ongoing improvements to the building”.
