This theater was located in the Parker Building which was built in 1905 meaning the theater was carved out of existing commercial space.

As the description states, this theater has not been demolished and is operating as a church. Not sure why its listed as demolished.

This isn’t the Avenue. This theater was located on the next block north on Woodward.

nsortzi commented about Avenue Theatre on Oct 7, 2023 at 11:09 pm

From the book Detroit’s Downtown Movie Palaces: “The Avenue Theatre was constructed in 1859 as Merrill Recital Hall at 400 Woodward Avenue. From 1886 to 1901, it was known as the Wonderland Theatre, a vaudeville house. Following the Wonderland’s move to Campus Martius, the theater was extensively renovated and reopened as the Avenue, a 1,000-seat burlesque theater. It was demolished in 1950 to construct the City-County Building.”

Note that the current address would be 107 Woodward, but before the address system changed in 1921 it would have been 400 Woodward.

This theater was actually in Waterford not Pontiac. The Waterford/Pontiac border is Telegraph Road.

Drayton Plains is an unincorporated community in Waterford Township, so shouldn’t this be listed as being in Waterford?

The address is incorrect and should be 2155 South Rochester Road. After it closed it became a Bed, Bath and Beyond. It’s now a Dunham’s.
