Deluxe Theatre

Located in the East English Village neighborhood, the Deluxe Theatre was a decent-sized neighborhood house, seating 1,600. Opened in November 1918, it was designed by B. C. Wetzell, who designed a number of Detroit-area movie houses, including the Highland Park Theatre in the suburb of the same name. The Deluxe Theatre closed in 1958, and was demolished in April 1963.

This is not actually in Indian Village, Indian Village ends about six blocks to the west. I think this is East English Village, but I’m not sure.

The 1600 seat DeLuxe Theatre with its Adam architecture and terra cotta front opened in November of 1918. Advertising runs consistently from November of 1918 ceasing on March 1, 1955. A high profile murder involving a teenager leaving the theatre early in 1955 appears to lead to the neighborhood theater’s demise. The DeLuxe was demolished along with the Hollywood Theatre (4801 W. Fort) in April of 1963 as the city underwent urban redevelopment.
