This bland, undistinquished triplex was originally opened as the Maple 3 in 1974 by Suburban Detroit Theaters. It was acquired by AMC (the cupholders still have the AMC logo on them) in 1992 and by Landmark Theatres in 1998.

I was there recently; I had not seen a film there since the theater’s AMC days. The screening rooms are getting rather shabby. With persistent reports that Landmark’s other Detroit-area operation, the Main in Royal Oak, will eventually close, and the apparent physical neglect of this house, one has to wonder what Landmark’s long-range plans are for the Detroit market.

Photo from 2010 of the Maple Arts Theatre. The complex was in quite good condition on my visit and still retained much of its original 70’s décor.

Landmark’s lease on this theater will end at the end of January, 2012; a new operator is taking over and will shut down the theater in April to install digital projection, new seating, and new screens.

According to a an article that appeared in the October 14, 2012 edition of Crain’s Detroit Business, a $1.5 million dollar makeover should be complete by November 1, 2012 (subscription required to view article).

In addition to new screens and seating, the revamped cinema will now feature a coffee bar and alcoholic beverage service. A set of (mostly) renovation-related photos can be seen here.

The theater will no longer operated by Landmark; it has a new website (see above) and the company that owns it is known as Cloud Nine Theater Partners LLC.
