Opened around 1909, L.L. Hayes operated the silent-era Crown Theatre at 159 W. Main Street in Jackson, Michigan. It was managed by J.B. Hunter who created many dynamic, eye-catching fronts for the moving picture theatre. The Crown Theatre was closed in 1917.

This web page with information about Jackson’s movie theaters says that the Crown Theatre was opened in 1909 or 1910, was owned by C. A. Kuhlman, and was located on Michigan Avenue across the street from Kuhlman’s Rex Theatre, which was at 172-174 W. Michigan. 159 W. Michigan Avenue is probably the correct address for the Crown Theatre, which closed in 1917.

C. A. Kuhlman’s Crown Theatre was mentioned in the May 15, 1912, issue of The Edison Kinetogram, a semi-monthly publication of the Edison Company.

The stretch of Main Street on which this theater was located was renamed Michigan Avenue long ago.
