The 1,500-seat Wyandotte Main Theatre was opened in August 1938. The 800-seat Wyandotte Annex Theatre was built adjacent to the main theatre and opened on January 1, 1942 with Ronald Colman in “My Life With Caroline” & “Burma Cowboy”. They were the biggest first run movie theaters in the “Downriver” area of Metro Detroit.
I don’t know much else about it’s history at the moment, but will research it soon (seeing that our company is speculating the purchase of this building, the Eastown or maybe even United Artists, for a performing arts venue).
It was supposed to become the Trillium Performing Arts Center…nearly $2,000,000 was put into renovations up until 2002, when fund raising became a problem (9/11). Trillium has gone belly-up as far as anybody knows. The theater is boarded up (which looks awful in downtown Wyandotte, a thriving small town). It was used in October, 2004 for a haunted house…sheesh. More news to come!
