There doesn’t seem to be any recent news concerning demolition of the theater, so the assumption is that it still stands.

I have been looking for documentation of Charles Agree being the architect of the 1940’s renovation. Bryan Krefft – what is your source of documentation? Park Theater was also included an the Arcadia Publications book, Detroit Art Deco, by Rebecca Binno Savage and Greg Kowalski. Theater has been open but only as a bookstore the past 1.5 years. There was an electrical fire this past Saturday night though.

Oddly enough I find that this picture is of the theater, even though the site is the official site for the 5 Drive-In in Ontario
