Joe, There was a auto garage and auto repair shop located next to & behind the the Midtown in the 50s, owned and ran by the Buckmaster" family,I wonder if they owned the original garage that the Midtown was built on? I worked with a David Vogel. in the 60s & 70s, in the Theatre business, any relation? Jerry D.

The Midtown Theatre was featured in an article in Boxoffice of December 6, 1941. It was built in a converted garage. The plans were by Dearborn architects Bennett & Straight.
