The building is still there awaiting renovation. It’s located on M-28 (Lake Shore Drive) on the North and West, Kuivinen Street to the South and Smith Street to the East.

The theater seated 1100, not 1200. I started going to the theater in the 1960s to watch movies. I remember seeing Fred MacMurray in ‘The Absent Minded Professor’. The last movie I saw there was in the late 70s; we went nearly ever Friday. Our senior class High School play, ‘Prime Time Crime’ directed by Mrs. Grace Graves was performed on stage there in 1979.
