An article about the opening of the Harbor Theatre in Ecorse, published in the October 30, 1948, issue of Boxoffice Magazine, says that the co-owner of the new house, Andrew Bzovi, had built the Ecorse Theatre in 1920 and had been its operator ever since.

Complete booth equipment was advertised for sale by the Ecorse Theatre in the classified ad section of Boxoffice, September 1, 1951. An item in the November 13, 1954, issue of Boxoffice said in passing that the old Ecorse Theatre had been closed and remodeled for use as a tavern. The item did not specify when this had taken place.
