5/14/2005 - Moviegirl
By the time I was a child in the 80s, this was a dollar house. I dont recall it ever being anything but! Mom never took us to first-run movies, in fact she rarely took us to movies at all. But if we absolutely HAD to see something (still.

six months after it came out. ) this was the place.

2/9/2003 - WaterWinterWonderland
This 4 screen theatre was one of the early mult-plexes to spring up in the suburbs in the 70s. The auditoriums were quite small and pretty much looked like a basement with carpeting. The only advantage was it was within walking distance of the many nearby neighborhoods. The theatre changed hands a few times and finally died around the time the enormous Southfield 20 opened up nearby. I used to walk over there with my friends and sneak in.

Most of the kids that worked at the theater were from my neighborhood and they turned a blind eye to us as we snuck past the box office! The tiny mall area where the box office was has been converted to a Secretary of State and the auditorium area is now a Golds Gym.
