The LaSalle Garden opened in 1920, and as its name would imply, featured an auditorium decorated to resemble a walled garden, similar to C. Howard Crane’s Garden, better known by its later name, the Sassy Cat.

It was designed by Christian W. Brandt, and was one of the largest of his many Detroit-area movie houses, seating just under 2000.

The theater was renamed the Century in 1930, and remained in operation until 1954.

During the 70s, the former theater was completely gutted, and rebuilt as a car wash, which has long since been torn down.
