This 1076-seat neighborhood movie house opened in 1916, an early design by Detroit-based theater architect Christian W. Brandt.

During the early to mid 50s, the Delthe, also known as the Del, was one of a handful of Detroit theaters which screened 3-D films. By the early 60s, the Del was closed. It has since been demolished.

From one who went to high school a couple of blocks away—this theater was called the Delthe (pronounced Del-thee). Despite the odd name it had a neat vertical sign.
