The Douglas Auto Theatre closed on July 24, 1985. The last movie ever shown there was Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. The lot then sat there abandoned for 20 years until a beverage distributor bought the property and built a warehouse there in 2005.

The screens are gone. There is an excellent website that has pictures of everything from the last month it was open. Also it has pictures of the screen, poles, and snack bar in disarray after it closed. The site is http://www. vanishedkalamazoo.

com For those from Kalamazoo, it has a nostagic look at things that were a big thing here but are now gone forever.
