The Farmington 4 Cinemas was owned by the Krim Brothers. Their corporation name was Krim Enterprises Inc. I used to work on and take care of their cars during the mid 70's. Sol Krim was a great guy whom I mostly interacted with. The other two brothers were good people too, Leonard and Mac.

They had another brother out in California who was a well-known Hollywood producer and also went by the nickname Mac Krim who had dated extensively Kim Novak in the mid 50's. I never figured out why the youngest brother always went by his older brother's nick name Mac? All the brothers used to also own and started out with Krim Theater on Woodward Ave. in the 1940's in Highland Park (enclave city in Detroit).

I remember going to this non-descript early neighborhood multi-plex in the 70's. Although it was destroyed by fire, it did not look unlike the building that resides on that site today. This location was never that popular to begin with as I recall. In any case, it would not have survived the onslaught of the larger multi-plexes that reside in Oakland County now, with superior auditoriums and better sound. I guess the only legacy of this house was that it provided competition to the superior art-deco Farmington Civic for five years or so, which happily is still alive and kicking after being twinned.
