Changed name to the Broadway Capitol in the 1950's and maintained a solid venue of Sci-Fi Horror Movies through the 60's. They even had a Premier showing of the TINGLER, where some of the seats were rigged with motors to create a vibrating sensation.

I believe it was also known as the Broadway Capitol ; I used to go to downtown Detroit to see the B movies i. e. Trantula and the bug horror movies in this theatre.
