This theater was Gladwin Park Theatre and it was open in 1927 according to the Detroit City Index. My great grandmother was the organist for the theater and is listed in the directory.

The September 4, 1936, issue of The Film Daily had this item about the Gladwin/Booth Theatre: “Bennett & Straight, architects, are starting work on remodeling the Gladwin Theater for Julius D. London. House will be renamed the Booth, with opening about Oct. 1.”

It is the showroom/service area for gregory Marina, they deal in pleasure boats, and some large ones at that. You can see the shape of the auditorium from the street easily.

The Gregory Boat Company has two buildings on this block at the theater address. You can see an aerial on the site posted on 10/4/08. Out of thr two, the building further west may be the theater, but the boat company has built something in front of it, I believe.

The architect of the Gladwin Park Theater was E.H. Rogers.
