The May 29, 1937, issue of Boxoffice Magazine said that ground had been broken for the Ward Theatre. The house was being built for G.A. and Lee Ward, who already operated the Broadway Theatre in Mt. Pleasant.

The Ward Theatre, designed by the Dearborn firm of Bennett & Straight, was to have 900 seats, with 700 on the main floor and 200 in a mezzanine. The August 7, 1937, issue of Boxoffice Magazine said that the Ward Theatre was scheduled to open Sunday, August 8.
