Another one of the multitude of Detroit-area theaters designed by C. Howard Crane, the Russell Theatre opened in 1917 for both vaudeville and motion pictures, and its auditorium could seat just over 1,400. It contained a full stage, a large balcony, orchestra pit, dressing rooms and theater organ (added later).
Though initially popular, attendance at the Russell Theatre decreased substantially through the late-1940’s. It closed around 1950 and has long since been razed.
