According to this page at Historic Detroit, the Miles Theatre was opened on May 15, 1910, ran its last show on Nov. 28, 1927, and was demolished around May, 1928, to make way for the Griswold Building, which is still standing.

The Miles Theatre was designed by the Minneapolis architectural firm Kees & Colburn (Franklin Kees and Serenus Colburn.)

I thought I would mention that my great uncle, Bee Ho Gray, peformed at the Miles Theatre during the week of March 8, 1915. This was one of probably thousands of venues he played during his many years as a Vaudeville entertainer. A newspaper article about the show at the Miles can be seen at:
