The Rees Theatre, a beautiful Art Moderne style single-screen movie house, is located on Michigan Street in downtown Plymouth. The theatre seated 600 and opened on February 1, 1940 with Barbara Stanwyck in “Remember the Night”. The Rees Theatre was constructed in a much older building which originally housed, among other businesses, a funeral parlor.
In 1997, the Rees Cinema was restored, including the spectacular marquee, with its chase lights and colorful neon. For its reopening after the restoration, it screened “Gone With the Wind”. The Rees Cinema continued to operate as a first-run movie house until it closed on December 22, 2009 with Robin Williams in “Old Dogs”. In January 2017 it was gifted to a non-profit organisation and funding was found and a reopening is planned for October 1, 1922.
