Today we'll continue our virtual tour of historical Michigan theaters and drive-ins with a look at the New Theatre in New Baltimore. My uncle Albert S. Johnson Jr's list shows this as a 1948 job by Johnson Construction Company. My grandfather Al Johnson's photo, taken in May 1948, shows a modest-sized new block building; the front of which had a clean late 1940's look.

The New Theatre was opened prior to 1941. After closing in July 1959, the theatre was converted into the New Baltimore Recreation Center.

This movie theater had the amenities of the day including a cry room, which was mostly a make-out room. When it closed, it was converted into the New Baltimore Recreation Center. In the early 1970s they featured local bands of the day, including the Frost, Iggy and the Stooges, and Toby Redd. The center is still used for community events.
