From the Images of America Book “Battle Creek”: “In 1946 the Battle Creek Civic Theatre began performing, at first in an empty hangar converted into an auditorium at Kellogg Airfield, and later wherever a facility was available. In February of 1973, after two years of renovation, the old Strand Movie Theater on East Michigan Avenue was reopened as the Battle Creek Civic Theatre. It was demolished in 1989.”
