The Wyandotte Main Theatre and Wyandotte Annex Theatre were built as two theatres located side-by-side and were the biggest first run movie theaters in the “Downriver” area of Metro Detroit. The Wyandotte Main Theatre seated 1,200 and the Wyandotte Annex Theatre seated 800. They were built in 1938.
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 this past October, 2004 for a haunted house…sheesh. More news to come!
