Radio City Theatre

About the only thing this 1,000 seat neighborhood theater had in common with its New York City namesake was that it was also built in Art Deco style. It opened in 1937, as part of the RKO circuit (which in the metro Detroit area also included the RKO Downtown-originally the Oriental Theatre, and the RKO Uptown Theatre, better known by its later name, the Six Mile Theatre).

It was operated by Suburban Detroit Theatres in the 1960’s, which remodeled the Radio City in 1964. It was closed, however, by the early-1970’s, and has since been razed.

I Saw a few movies there, it was a nice theatre. It was torn down when the Federals Dept. Store was demolished.

A photo of the Radio City, probably from 1964, can be seen here.
