Firms: Kohner & Payne
This theater, located in Detroit’s Brightmoor neighborhood, once sat over 1000, and opened in 1927. It stood on Fenkell Street at the corner of Blackstone Street. The Irving was designed by the firm of Kohner & Payne, whose other Detroit movie houses included the Uptown and the John Eberson-inspired Ramona, both long gone.
After a long life as a first-run theater, the Irving turned to adult fare in the 70s, and continued to screen adult features into the 90s before it closed. The former theater most recently housed a church, but had been vacant for the past couple of years. In May 2007, the building was destroyed in a fire.
