I am the Facility Manager at the Millennium Centre, formerly the Northland Theater. We are a performing arts centre with a VARIETY of events taking place from movie premieres, stage plays, concerts, dance competitions, fashion shows, business meetings, etc. We underwent an extensive renovation in 1999 and re-opened our doors in 2000. We welcome All to come visit us and see what we have to offer now. We have a 1028 seats in the auditiorium and a 4000 square foot lobby plus a Class C liquor license.

If anyone has any old photos or stories from the old Northland days to pass along please contact me at pnantais@cityofsouthfield. com. Paulette Nantais.

Opened in 1966, the Northland Theater was designed by the firm of Ted Rogvoy, and located at the Northland Mall. This modernistic-style movie house with its unusually-shaped curving and upturned roof could seat nearly 1500. The first movie screened at the Northland was Hitchcock's Torn Curtain. By the late 60s, the theater had become a 70mm roadshow house, including a year-long run of Funny Girl. Both the Northland and Americana, also in Southfield, fiercely competed as roadshow houses for many years, and the Northfield would end up usually showing the better films most of the time.

The large original auditorium was twinned in 1976. A decade later, AMC Theatres acquired the Northland, but only three years later, it was shuttered, due in large part to declining audiences and growing violence in and around the theater (a problem shared with the Americana as well in the late 80s). Today, after standing vacant for years, the former Northland operates as a mixed use live and movie venue, featuring East Indian entertainment, called the Millenium Theater. Cinema Treasures Link.
