Located in Highland Park to the north of Detroit. Built for William Graham and Nathan and Raymond Schreiber and opened July 23, 1937, the Palmer Park Theatre cost over $200,000 to erect. It was designed by Charles N. Agree in French Moderne style, similar in appearance to his Westown Theatre of a year earlier, in Detroit.
In 1950, it was sold to Art Weisberg, who later went on to operate former palaces like the Summit Theatre and United Artists Theatre in downtown Detroit during the 1970s as adult theatres.
The Palmer Park was recently demolished after falling into disrepair since closing years ago.
