The Center Theatre in Grand Blanc opened in 1946 and seated 638 people. It was owned by the Weishuhn family who lived next door to the development which included a bowling alley, dairy bar and gas station.
The theater had a dual sound system, cry room, a large stage and parking for 500 cars. It closed in 1965 and the Weishuhns converted it into a recreation center which was first called Colo Cue, then Invaders Arcade and is now the All-Star Sports Center.
When Mr. Weishuhn died in the mid 1980’s, the estate auction included items stored in the Weishuhn family bard including the original doors from the theater and the marquee. The marquee was fabricated by a sign company in Kalamazoo. Marquee letters served as paperweights for some of the items for for bidding.
