| Street View

Built as a vaudeville house in 1912 by the firm of Harley & Atchison seating around 650, the Globe was operated by United Amusements. By the time it was remodeled in 1915 by C. Howard Crane (and enlarged to seat just over 850), the Globe switched over to motion pictures.

It was located very close to the old Tiger Stadium, and was in operation through the 70s.

The Globe was demolished long ago.
