Ace Theatre

The Frontenac Theatre opened in 1912, seating over 800 and located on Harper Avenue at Frontenac Avenue in Northeast Detroit.

The theatre was renamed the Ace Theatre in 1939 (around the time it got an Art Moderne style remodel) and continued to operate until the early-1950’s. It later housed a church, which had moved out by 2022.
