I grew up in Waterford in the 70''s and 80''s. I went to this theater on numerous occassions when it was the Academy 59 Twin Theaters. I attended Waterford Township High School which was right across the street on the other side of M-59. This was the place I first saw the movie Grease and Saturday Night Fever.
