This theater reopened as the Oriole Terrace ballroom on October 18, 1922 after renovation. It was later renamed the Grand Terrace and following a fire in 1940 it became the Latin Quarter until 1991. It briefly reopened at Grand Quarters, but was vacant by the mid ‘90s. The building was demolished in 2012.

I uploaded photos from 2009 showing it as a Star theater. I don’t think it was branded as AMC until sometime around 2015?

nsortzi commented about Romeo Theatre on Dec 16, 2023 at 6:53 pm

The Romeo Theatre was built in the late ‘30s. It closed in 1967 and operated as the nightclub Mother’s from July-August 11, 1968. The MC5 were one of several bands to play the club during its brief existence. After Mother’s closed due to public pressure, the building became a nightclub again called Kaleidoscope, which lasted a year. It was then left vacant until being demolished for a bank parking lot on September 13, 1973. The correct address is 145 South Main Street.
