Photos of the Delft. I really like this person’s work. If you read her bio, she is still in high school. There is a lot of time for her to photograph & discover more theaters.

In response to TC’s comment — hey, thanks :) I’ve hit all the old theatres in Michigan now, can you believe that? Anyway, I’m up in the Marquette area, and recently hit Escanaba this past spring. It’s really great to see that the Michigan Theatre there will be showing movies again (it might be already, I haven’t visited since). The Delft, though, was looking worse for wear…

The name of one of the architects is misspelled. It should be Edwin O. Kuenzli. The page of Copper Country Architects devoted to Demetrius F. Charlton and his partners credits Kuenzli, who headed the firm’s Milwaukee office, with the design of this theater. Charlton & Kuenzli also designed the Butler Theatre in Ishpeming, Michigan.
