Opened in 1939, for the Wisper and Westman circuit, the Harper Theatre was designed by Charles N. Agree in Art Moderne style.
The theater was complete with an 80-foot vertical sign spelling out the theater’s name (which could be seen for blocks up and down Harper Avenue).
The Harper cost about $290,000 to build, and was at the time one of the most modern-looking theaters to open in Detroit. It also featured murals in the lobby and auditorium by Thomas di Lorenzo.
It was converted into a nightclub in the 70s, and currently is home to Harpos Concert Theatre, the premier venue for heavy-metal and industrial rock bands in Detroit.
