Here are some links to interesting articles on the Norwest Theater:
Detroit Free Press article on the history and impact the demolition has had on the neighborhood
An urban explorer catches some interior pictures and some excellent history the day before the place came crashing down:
The Norwest is being demolished. The demolition should start Monday, August 23rd, 2004. The theater is being demolished to make way for a Long John Silvers/A&W fast food restaurant.
The interior was renovated in the 60s. The interior is in pretty bad shape after sitting completely vacant and sealed for several years. There’s asbestos in several places as well. It would have been nice to save this Art Deco/Moderne neighborhood landmark.
