Michigan Theatre

Located on the urban side of town, I think it was built in 1930. In the 1940’s it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary W.S. Butterfield Theatres Inc. and Butterfield Michigan Theaters Co. After it closed, the upstairs was converted into apartments.

An article about concrete theater construction, in Boxoffice of April 2, 1949, included an interior photo of the Michigan Theatre, though I don’t find the house mentioned in the article itself. The style was Art Deco. The photo caption attributes the design to the Dearborn architectural firm Bennett & Straight.
