Here is a 1945 ad from the Traverse City Record-Eagle:

The May 27, 1948, issue of The Film Daily said that Butterfield’s new Michigan Theatre in Traverse City would open the following day. The June 6 issue of the same journal had this brief item: “Detroit — Butterfield Circuit has opened its newest house, the Michigan at Traverse City, a 1,200-seater. Elmer Keeler of C. Howard Crane Associates is the architect.”

My apologies for my carelessness, and thanks to dallasmovietheaters for correcting my mistake. I should have noticed that 1948 was the wrong year, as kencmcintyre had already posted a link to a 1945 ad.
