A recent article by the AP said that the historic Butler Theatre in Ishpeming was being transformed into an antique mall. This was a little shocking because this is the theatre where the world premiere of Otto Preminger’s classic film “Anatomy of a Murder” was held.
The theatre was rather tacky inside with worn curtains, red walls that looked like they were painted with tempera paint and gold leaf that was most likely gold spray paint. The sound system included several large box speakers with harp shaped speaker areas.
Used as a bookstore, occasional live performances are presented.
