In this photo a 1958 Edsel is parked in front of the theater:
My mother sent me an article about this from the AC Press. Very sad.
I drove past the site yesterday. The building just sits there, waiting for something to happen.
It looks like it was pretty small. 299 seats would be about right.
Status on this one should be changed to closed/demolished, per the two posts above.
Is it still in existence? I haven’t been over there in a while.
I drove past this shopping center many times, but never saw it as a drive-in.
There is some information about the bar on the internet as it is considered somewhat of a historic site in Detroit.
The theater was demolished years ago.
Doesn’t seem to be any building resembling the theater at this street address, according to the map view.
If you look at the building at 845, and then pan across the street, that would be 840. Doesn’t look like the 1982 building at all.
Google hadn’t made it to this neighborhood when I added the theater. You can’t see any of the decorative features in the first photo:
The Paris can be seen in this 1951 photo from the USC archive:
Pleasantville would be correct, or Cardiff possibly. My brother lives close to the old site, and his address is in Cardiff.
I guess I didn’t go uptown much in those days. I don’t recall this place.
I agree with that. I suppose the marquee for Arclight a while ago was supposed to direct us down the street to the other venue. The current marquee for this theater doesn’t mention Arclight.
My old neighborhood theater. Sounds like fun.
I drove down Mission Street last month when I went to the 49ers-Eagles game. I didn’t realize that all the theaters on this street were so close together. Must have been spectacular in its time.
I was there a couple of days ago. Nice remodel.
The theater is closed for conversion to Arclight.
Looks like they are building something on the site.
I think you’re referring to this one:
Where do we go now to watch movies for three bucks?
Say goodbye to this one. I drove past today and the theater has been razed. Status should be changed to closed/demolished.
