The C. Howard Crane-designed Boulevard Theatre opened around 1912, on Gratiot Avenue near Warren Avenue. This 400-seat theater was relatively short-lived, closing in 1939. It has since been torn down.

The obituary of James C. Ritter in the December 1, 1951, issue of The Billboard says that he built the Boulevard Theatre in 1911. A list of C. Howard Crane’s theater designs lists a “Ritter Theatre” as project #79, which would date it to about 1911. The house was most likely open by 1912.
