Previously operated by: Wisper-Wetsman Theaters
Firms: Graven & Mayger
Although C. Howard Crane submitted early plans for the Avalon Theatre, it ended up being designed by the Chicago-based firm of Graven and Mayger, who only designed a couple of theatres in the Detroit area, including the original Mayan-Aztec inspired interior of the Fisher Theatre, lost to a bland 1961 modernization by Rapp & Rapp!
Built for the Wisper-Wetsman Theaters chain in 1928, the Avalon Theatre was fairly large for a neighborhood house, and sat nearly 2,000.
It closed in 1967 but its organ was removed. The Avalon Theatre sat crumbling away for almost another decade prior to being razed.
