Just a few months after this 2,078-seat theater opened in late-1927 as the Orient Theatre, it changed its name to the Oriole Theatre, most likely due to the opening downtown of the similarly-named Oriental Theatre (which later became the RKO Downtown Theatre) around the same time.
It was designed by George D. Mason, who also designed the Great Lakes Theatre and Gem Theatre elsewhere in Detroit. After it closed in 1951, the Oriole Theatre sat vacant for over a decade, before being used as a church.
It has since been demolished.
