The Streamline Moderne style Pix Theatre was built in 1941, with a seating capacity for 512, all on a single floor. It closed in 1996 when it could no longer compete with the local multiplexes.

After being bought and restored by the city of Lapeer in 1997, the downtown Pix Theatre is showing movies again and serving as a focal point for local arts and community activities.

Today, the small, 306-seat theater is doing well financially and may not need city and state grants in the near future. Most of the Pix Theatre’s income is currently derived from its second-run film showings and theater rental fees.

This theater just dodged a bullet – according to Lapeer’s fire chief,a fire that gutted some adjacent buildings caused minor smoke and water damage to the Pix: http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/story/23950812/multi-building-fire-in-lapeers-downtown-historic-district
