Began as a movie theatre with occasional church services held on Sunday. Used in 1971-1972 as a concert venue. Then it became an adult move theatre soon after. It was eventually shut down by the city in 1997 for illegal activity, and was considered non-salvageable and was demolished.

The site of the theatre is now the cement company next door, as it has expanded.

This site used to be grounds for sex orgies of another color.

Here are some acts that played there:

Here is part of an 8/19/99 article from the Detroit News:

INKSTER — Demolition crews tore down the triple-X Melody Theater Wednesday to the honking of horns and cheers and applause of several dozen residents and officials.

The adult theater — which police raided numerous times to arrest customers on indecency charges — was an embarrassment to residents and a headache for elected officials since its most recent owners took over in 1977. Signs outside the Michigan Avenue theater advertised 25-cent peep booths.

Nice looking marquee for a XXX movie house.

I love the marquee in the Water Winter Wonderland listing above: “Michigan’s Finest Adult Movies”. What a laugh.
