The Admiral was located on the Eastside of Detroit,Michigan on Mack Ave. and St. Jean. The theater was opened in the 1920's or 1930's, closed in the late 1970's and converted into a church in the 1980's. At this present time the building is now a liquor store, one of the largest on the Eastside of Detroit.

I remember this movie theater because my parents took me there to see a double feature as a child. I remember the 1st time seeing a martial arts film here starring the late Bruce Lee i. e. Enter The Dragon.

Correction: The business there now is called Palace Pizza.

This building now houses Palace Pizza. The exterior is stripped down, but you can see clearly that it was once a theater.

Opened as the Harmony in 1921, this 1325-seat theater was completely remodeled in 1941 by C. Howard Crane in Art Moderne style. It not only received a new look, but a new name, as well, the Admiral. The theater was shuttered by the mid-70s and though it still remains standing today, it is little more than a shell. Cinema Treasures Link.

As a kid growing up on the east side of Detroit back in the 70s, there was a small neighborhood movie theater called The Admiral. It was on Mack Ave. between Beniteau and St. Jean. It closed in the late 70s or early 80s and became a church called Browns Chapel.

Its still there today and the ticket booth might even still be there. The original flourescent marquee is now painted wood. I have fond memories of The Admiral. Back in the 60s they showed many first-run flicks, but in the 70s it became a grindhouse that showcased Blaxploitation, Kung Fu films and low budget Action, Horror & Sci-Fi double features.

I do remember that matinees were $. 75 and regular admission was $1. 50!! It was cool because you didnt have to drive downtown to see the latest flicks, you could walk around the corner and see folks from the hood there. Also, the hot dogs were great and the popcorn had real butter!! The Admiral definitely deserves a mention on your site! Hopefully some other east-siders remember it!.
