Norwest Theatre to be Demolished Next Week

DETROIT, MI — The Norwest Theatre will be demolished within the next two weeks to make way for an A & W or Long John Silvers Drive-Thru. (The theater’s owner previously demolished the Mercury theater.

Many have asked the owner if they can get pictures of the theater’s interior before it’s demolished, but he’s refused their requests, saying there is “mold and smoke” in the theater. But I hardly believe that. This is a perfectly viable theater — it closed just four years ago, in 2000.

I will keep you updated as to when it happens with the theater.

Neo, if you want pictures, contact the demolition company… before they cut the power… and if you give them something (beer) they won’t refuse.
