A beautiful movie palace from the 1920’s located in downtown Saginaw with a wonderful sound rising out of the Barton 3 manual 11 ranks organ located in the orchestra pit. Originally operated by the W.S. Butterfield chain, this theatre was opened on July 28, 1927, by the same people that constructed the Fox Theatre in Detroit the next year. By the early-1940’s it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Butterfield Michigan Theaters Co.
The Temple Organ Society was mostly responsible for keeping the theatre maintained and open in the past. The theatre was closed in early-2002.
Restored to its original grandeur in 2003, the Temple Theatre was reopened in November, 2003, featuring some of the same style of vaudeville acts that were performed when the theater originally opened.
