I lived at 629 Eliot, which was just off Hastings and I went to the Castle Theater on some weekends as a child. Since I wasn’t born until 1949 the movie theater did not close in 1939. I believe it closed around 1960. That’s when the businesses and families living in the area were evicted to make way for what is now known at the I-75 freeway. After moving, my family eventually found the Fine Arts Theater on Woodward and either went there on weekends or to the drive-in Ford-Wyoming or another drive-in somewhere just off Woodward, in place of the Castle.
