The Monroe Theatre was built for local exhibitor J.R. Denniston in 1937. It was designed by the Dearborn architectural firm of Bennett & Straight.

Richard G: Interesting story. I have a former college dormitory friend who grew up in Monroe so must ask her about her memories of the Monroe.

Sheer luck got me inside this theatre. Some people were rehearsing for a performance on Saturday May 15, 2004, so I walked inside. A lovely art deco theatre with a nice balcony and a seating capacity of about 1200. The theatre was built in 1938. The art deco chandalier in the foyer area is very impressive. Although some staff members were present during my self tour, most seemed to know very little about this lovely theatre which makes their employment and their productions possible.
