About 1939 or 1940 the Rainbo must have attained its greatest audience when it presented the then-notorious Ecstasy starring Hedy Keisler (better known later as Hedy Lamarr). The Czech film, from 1932, reputed to show nude shots of Hedy, was a rerelease with added narration (it was originally silent). Just how graphic the rerelease was I cannot say. I was just eight years old at the time but I can still remember the long lines of patrons waiting to be admitted to the next showing.

The Rainbow theater was located directly across the street on Grand River from the Rivera theater. In the forties my friends and I attended movies a few times a year. I dont know when it was closed,sometime in the fifties I would think.
