Kerasotes quickly became notorious in Ann Arbor because the first thing they did was to sack all of Butterfield’s union projectionists and replace them with lower-paid employees. While there was a certain business logic in this (I don’t think the other chains in town used union projectionists, and the projectors were more automated than before) it caused a huge backlash. Picketers were a regular site at the State theater more than a year later. I’ve wondered if this happened at other locations…I mean, Ann Arbor is a liberal town in Michigan, but Michigan is a union state…

The theatre actually never housed a supermarket. It was torn down and replaced by a Farmer Jack supermarket and oil change store. The sign remained up for years. When the theatre was torn down I kept bricks from it as memories of the times I spent at the movies with my dad as a small child in the early 70’s.
