Located at the corner of W. Verner Highway and Ferdinand Street in Central Southwest Detroit. The Stratford Theatre opened in 1916, designed by Joseph P. Jogerst, and could seat 1,137. In 1938 it received an elegant Art Deco facelift, with a cream and salmon colored terra-cotta façade, and new triangular marquee, designed by architectural firm Rogvoy & Wright of Detroit, MI.
After closing years earlier, the Stratford Theatre reopened in the summer of 1985 offering a free movie series. At this time, seating was reduced to about 600. However, the theatre was closed again at the end of that summer, and has remained vacant since.
