Previously operated by: United Detroit Theaters
Architects: Hector G. Payne
Styles: Art Deco
Designed by Hector Payne in 1936 (the same year his Norwest Theatre opened on Grand River Avenue) in Art Deco style, the Varsity Theatre sat just under 1,500 and opened September 4, 1936.
It was originally operated by the United Detroit Theatres chain.
In 1960, seats removed from the Fisher Theatre when it was being remodeled from a movie palace to a venue for live performances, replaced the Varsity’s original seating.
After closing in the 70s, the Varsity was used as a church for many years, but has since been razed.
