There's been a mistake on the closing of the loop theater is a young man of about 14 years old my friends and I used to go down there directly across the street was the times square and we used to go there too and watch Tarzan movies and rocket Man and so many more with lot of westerns $0. 12 was that price back then I don't know what it was when it was closed but 1958-59 would be more appropriate about the time that it close thank you Ron nankervis to.

thank you for posting this picture of the loop theater. my mother was the cashier/ticket sales until it closed. i can remember walking to the theater as a little girl of 4 or 5yrs. can''t imagine doing that today! we lived on 8th street parallel to tigr stadium. it was my guide back home.

hope to find more pictures of the area in the 1948-1950''s.

Thanks for the info about the loop. The first show I saw a movie at I think it was Frankenstein 1949 or 1950.

Designed by H. D. Ilgenfritz and opened in 1928, this small 550-seat theater operated as a 24-hour house, and was popular with second-and-third shift workers. Its most notable feature was its large vertical marquee, towering over the unassuming facade, and topped by a circle with a bright red star in it, its name spelled out below. After nearly three decades in operation, the Loop was closed in 1956 and has since been razed.

June 1959 - The two houses that remain in the old Associated Theatres operation, may vanish soon. The Loop is scheduled for razing in a downtown rehabilitation program now coming before the Detroit Common Council, and the suburb of River Rouge is thinking of razing the Rouge Theatre for a new civic center.
