This is a photo of the theater from my own youth in Wayland, Michigan. It was situated on West Superior Street. I spent hours and hours and hours waiting on the curb for my parents to pick me up after a movie. This old Art Deco style theater held 411 seats plus another 8 or so in the upstairs crying room. I know that because my grandmother used to be the janitor there and I counted them one Saturday morning when I accompanied her to do her work. The shows were Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings and once in a while they had some special Saturday matinee show for kids. In the sixties, a kid with 35 cents could get pay the price of admission and get a box of popcorn. It was the place to be on Friday nights at 7 p.m.
