The over 1800-seat Grande opened in 1909, as a legitimate theater, and later served as a vaudeville house before it was remodeled in 1921 by the firm of Kohner & Seeler and switched to movies.

The theater closed in 1951.

A Marr & Colton theater organ size 2/5 was installed in the Grande Theater in 1929.

This is from Boxoffice in July 1953:

DETROIT-E.B. Dudley, who dropped his stage show policy at the re-opened Grande over the Independence Day weekend, was to resume this week. Burt London, second generation of an old show business family, is now projectionist at the house.

No sign of the theatre in the Google aerial views. About 80% of the neighborhood is empty lots. The Theatre is long gone.
