Algonac Theatre

The Classic Theatre opened in 1914, seating 400, at the corner of Front and Fruit Streets. It initially hosted vaudeville, but later began showing silent films as well. Around the 30s, the theater was renamed the Algonac Theatre, and operated through the 50s.

A neighboring bowling alley acquired the theater after it closed, and converted it into additional lanes. In the 60s, both the original bowling alley and the former Algonac Theatre were destroyed by a blaze and afterward were torn down. A bank acquired both properties for expansion.

Any additional information on the Algonac Theatre would be appreciated.

Bill Schulte owned and operated the Algonac in 1960, along with the Mariner in Marine City, according to a report in Boxoffice magazine at that time.
