This theatre was located on country road F-41, just outside the entry to the now-defunct Wurtsmith Air Force Base.

1971 phone book says "Mini Art Theatre: Show Starts at 7 PM – Air Conditioned." 1976 phone book refers to it as Showcase Theatre.

At some point in the 1980’s, it became a dance hall/bar called the Main Gate Lounge. The building has been abandoned since at least the mid-1990’s.

According to the Oscoda Press (October 13, 2010), the township turned down a local businessman’s plans to open a motorcycle shop in the building.
