Google Map is over a mile off. It is Southwest of the Red Dot, a bit Northeast of Miller Road and Ketzeler Drive.



Open in ~1969 or ~1973-~1997? Can anyone verify the exact dates?

Opened as a twin by Butterfield Theatres, of Detroit, they had about 60 theaters all in Michigan.

Around 1977 2 more theaters added.

Around 1985 bought by Kerasotes Theatres of Springfield, Ill. George Kerasotes, President, they had over 30 theaters in Illinois and Michigan. They split the original 2 theaters to make a total of 6 screens.

I don’t know why Google Maps has such trouble with Miller Road. Do the numbers reset at some point?
