Trade magazine Billboard reported in its issue of November 29, 1952, that an attempt to reopen the Rouge Theatre had been thwarted by the city’s new parking law. Existing theaters had been grandfathered in under the new requirements, but the Rouge had been closed for about three and a half months. The city contended that the closing meant the Rouge was no longer an “established” business, and would have to conform to the requirement of one parking space for every four seats before it would be allowed to operate. I’ve been unable to discover if the house ever reopened after this.

These 1935 photos show a Lancaster Theatre in River Rouge that doesn’t seem to be listed at CT (unless it was later re-named the Rouge): Boxoffice

The Rouge and the Lancaster were different theaters. The Lancaster is not yet listed at Cinema Treasures.
