I remember being a little kid and being mesmerized by this little movie theatre in the old Meadowbrook Mall. I remember a gentleman at the front box office window in a coat and tie and they would show older movies like Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, Equus and Mary Queen of Scots.

As I recall, the man behind this fine effort was named John Thompson, and he was a theater organist. He and his wife, whose name I can't recall, and maybe 1 or 2 others worked the theater, which had about 75 seats. Initially he had older, classic films, but later brought in features that were fairly recent, possibly to try for more attendance. Some of the showing were very well-attended, such as a Dracula/Frankenstein double-bill, a 3D movie night (or more), and when he showed Harold And Maude, the first time I got to see that wonderful film. Each show would include some theater-organ playing, too. Really nice folks there. This was located in the west end of the Meadow Brook Mall, then in Avon Township MI (basically Rochester), though that site is now in Rochester Hills. Can't recall exactly how long the MMT was in operation, but I was there at least a few times and it was really special.
