The Grand Theatre was opened in 1914. It was remodeled in 1940, reopening as the Legion Theatre. It seated 150 and the theatre was open at least into the mid-1950’s.

The records of the Grand Forks architectural firm Wells-Denbrook Architects (Theodore B. Wells and Myron Denbrook, Jr.) lists as a 1940 project the remodeling of the Grand Theatre at Michigan, North Dakota. As the Legion Theatre opened in 1940, I think it likely that Legion was the new name of the remodeled Grand.

I’ve been unable to find the Grand mentioned in any of the earlier theater trade journals, but Michigan was mentioned in a brief item in The Moving Picture World of June 4, 1914, which said only that “L. Thompson will open a moving picture theater at Michigan, N. D.”

A brief item in Boxoffice of May 19, 1956, said that the darkened theater at Michigan, North Dakota, had reopened.
