I enjoy all the information and pictures about all the theaters. The last two pictures show and stated as being interior shots of the JEWEL are in fact interior photos of the MACOMB theater. In the mid fifties I learned my craft as a projectionist at the MACOMB under the direction of its projectionist named Pingle. (Not certain of the spelling). At one time or another between 1955 and 1965 I worked in most of the theaters of Macomb county.

As a child I was heavily involved with The Jewel Theater. My father was the manager and my mother the assistant. I spend many wonderful hour there and loved every minute. I have some pics I can share.

My brother and I were there the last night. They were showing a rerelease of Oliver Twist. The heat was shut off half-way through the movie. They gave us all refunds. This was in the mid-70s.

The theatre opened up again a while later as X-rated (which lasted for a few more years, I believe). Then the building remained vacant for quite some time. As with most of Mt. Clemens and the city governments short-sighted disregard for anything any of the old, classic buildings -- it went the way of all the Luxury Hotels of Mt.

Clemens: it was demolished to make room for something creative. not! such as another parking lot or lawyers office or bar.
