As of today, 9/29/2012, the building is still intact and in-use by the Solid Rock church. I'm not sure the status of whats on the inside, but the external structure appears good.

In the early 70''s the Flamingo was owned by the Guzzardo family, owners of Guzzardo Meats. It was called the Flamingo Hall and was the site of high school reunions, wedding receptions and other parties. My wife and I were married in February, 1972 down the street at St. Jude and our reception was at the Flamingo Hall. Don''t remember a whole lot about the inside of the hall, but I do recall the food was excellent and the marriage still exists.

Did a Google search, found a site I think was called DetroitYES that had a blog of the 7 Mile/Gratiot area and had a few mentions and a lot of info of the area. I uploaded a copy of a Flamingo Hall ad and will submit it under separate cover. Unfortunately I have no exterior photos of the theater/hall that I can find and all my photos of the interior are people photos, with little detail of the building.

This theater was torn down during the summer of 2006. It is now a parking lot for a newly built strip mall.

As a neighborhood movie house, my father went there once to hear a conservative lobbyist named Donald Lobsinger, speak. Years later, it was turned into a ballroom and my high school (Bishop Gallagher-class of 1977) had our after show party there the year we did Fiddler on the Roof (1974). The small building to the immediate left of the theatre(attached) was a repair garage, I believe. Later I think it became a 7-11. To the right stood a mens shoe store which I think fronted Gratiot.

This was an old neighborhood movie house located on the east side at 7 mile and Gratiot. It had a pretty good run, going 27 years before finally going dark in 1952.
