I grew up in Detroit in the 1950s. On my birthday in June of 1953, my Mom took me to the Rosedale Theater on Woodward Avenue to see the movie, SHANE. It was a life changing experience. (I subsequently became a film director. ) The film was wonderful, and the Rosedale was, as I recall, quite a beautiful neighborhood theater.

I would love to see a historical photo of the Rosedale as it was in the early '50s, before it was changed into a church.

We lived on Rosedale Ct. during the late 1930s. We went to the Rosedale Theater every Saturday. The price for a ticket was 10 cents.

I lived on Harmon, just around the corner from the Rosedale, from 1946-1953. On Saturdays (for 12 cents), we saw two movies, a Buster Crabbe-type serial, previews, and an hour of cartoons. At intermission there would be a pie-eating contest. The movies would change on Sunday, and the price was 14 cents. Adult tickets were a mind-boggling 44 cents.

The theater building itself has not been demolished. The vacant area that you are showing were other businesses that was in the block. After the Rosedale closed my pastor Bishop C. L. Morton, Sr.

purchased the theatre in 1955 under the name of Greater Mount Zion Church of God in Christ. We held church their until the late 70''s. The actual theatre buildng is still standing. I drove by about a couple weeks ago and there was yellow roping tape around the theatre building area and I seen a tractor there in the area also.

So finally in 2007 the building that was originally the Rosedale Theatre is finally being demoished!.

Dick Scklucki, a Downtown Theatre Manager for United Detroit Theatres. worked at the Rosedale in the 50s. He was always telling me about the great times at the Saturday morning kids shows there. lots of audience particpation and kid giveawys. Dick later manage the Brodway Capitol(Grand Circus) and several other UDT Theatres in the 60s, 70s & 80s.

He was the man who trained me in theatre management.
