9/2/2016 - Harrison Engle
As a young boy in 1950-1958 I used to attend this small neighborhood theatre on Hamilton Avenue. It seemed very charming. I remember nearly every film I saw there, including FORT APACHE, SANDS OF IWO JIMA, (after their original release) HOUDINI and BEAU JAMES. I would love to see a photo of this lost theatre which gave me many happy memories.

This 1800 seat theater was designed by Maurice Finkel, who also designed the Michigan in Ann Arbor and the Goldcoast in Detroit, and opened in 1921. The Tuxedo closed in 1958, and was demolished almost a decade later. Cinema Treasures Link.

February 1959 - Edward A. Long, the theatrical sign man, dropped in to report that Wisper and Wetsman has sold the Tux, formerly the Tuxedo, in Highland Park for use as a church.
