December 22nd, 1965 grand opening ad in photo section. The third of General Cinema’s twin cinemas in the Detroit area.

I used to go to this theater when I lived in Southfield until December 2014 (I now live in Charlotte, Michigan, a small town between Lansing and Battle Creek).

I was shocked when I came back to the Detroit area for a visit with my friend last spring and discovered the Silver Cinemas were closed (a sign on the marquee read, “Closed – It’s been reel”). I guess that was a consequence of the Macomb Mall being remodeled.

Shame that now if I go back to suburban Detroit for a visit, and want to see a movie I missed the first time around, I’ll have to go to that sorry Movies 16 at Universal Mall in Warren; the Silver Cinemas had more class for a second-run theater. But, when I have enough money and want to see anything first-run, it’s good to know the MJR Partridge Creek is still active (I also have an MJR Rewards Card to use there, which is likewise still active).

I worked for this cinema in the late 80’s and early 90’s when it was run by General Cinema. Also when it was later purchased by Cinemark. Anyone have any pictures?
