Firms: Mildner & Eisen
Initially to have been designed by C. Howard Crane, who submitted an earlier design, the Iris Theatre ended up being done by the firm of Mildner & Eisen, in 1916, instead. The theater sat around 880, and was initially a first run film house. It would later switch to second-run and double features before closing in 1954 due to declining attendance.
From 1961 to 1962, the Detroit Theater Organ Club (DTOC) presented organ concerts at the Iris Theatre on the former Fisher Theatre organ while they were having the Senate Theatre rehabbed as their permanent home. After the DTOC left, the Iris Theatre stood vacant for a few more years before being torn down.
