I grew up a few blocks from this theater and went there every weekend for years. When I was in grade school all of us kids went there every Sunday afternoon for the double feature.

I should also mention that the kids there had necking contests and I won once. They had a soda machine in the lobby that dropped a paper cup down and filled up with soda. For a quarter you could see two movies, get popcorn and a soda. Great memories

From Britton I grew up on Roswell Ave and attended Windsor elementary school. We would go to the Michigan theater in the late ‘50s. For a little kid it was 10 cents for the double feature on Sunday. popcorn was also a dime. We would stop at a confectionery on Holly Hills and buy penny candy and take into the movie. Many fond memories.

A photo of the Michigan Theatre can be seen at the bottom of this page of a promotional booklet published in the late 1920s by the Federal Cement Tile Co. of Chicago. The Michigan Theatre was designed by architect Otto J. Kreig.
