This originally was a single-screen movie house on Michigan Avenue at Elm Street in Big Rapids. It opened as the Colonial Theatre. By 1941 it had been renamed Big Rapids Theatre and was operated by Butterfield Michigan Theaters Co.

It became a four-screen cinema operated by the Carmike chain and showing first-run films and by 2017 it was operated by AMC. It was closed on March 16, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It was announced in August 2020 that the closure would be permanent.
