A postcard view of the Calumet Theatre in Calumet Michigan.

With thanks to Charles Van Bibber for one the most articulate theater descriptions I have seen on Cinema Treasures to date.

Appreciate the photos and other postings, but am still looking for info on the 1934 renovation. I also have pictures of the theater—inside and outside—if anyone is interested.

I am helping the National Park research the history of this theater and specifically am looking for information on the 1934 renovation featuring art deco type murals designed by artist Alfred Messner. If anyone can direct me to a resouce I would be most appreciative.
