I remember walking to the Alden in the late 30''s with my mother, I was 8 or 9 years old. We would go once a week to get another piece of dishware, glasses, and rolling pin. The pattern had apples and pears. My daughter has some of the set today on display.

Just a minor correction--the Carmen Theater was actually on Schafer Rd, a block north of Ford Rd.

The Alden Theater was at the northeast corner of Kenilworth and Ford Road on the east side of Dearborn. As a child growing up in the 50s and 60s, it had already gone out of business and was completely boarded up. This of course facscinated all the kids in our neighborhood and soon tales of it being haunted arose. I remember peeking through the boards and seeing the lobby area. I remember it being in an art deco type style with a white tile floor.

It had a ticket booth. It was a very small theater reminescient of what you see today when they build the newer threaters with some small screens. The Alden was torn down during the widening of Ford Road in the late 1960s.
