When I was running the Our, this was our competition. We drew from the same neighborhood and ran the same sort of stuff. It was friendly competition. We figured out early on that our common enemy was porn operator Floyd Bloss who wanted a west side presence. He tried to undercut the leases on both plants.

This was a strong neighborhood theater from a long, long time. I believe it was originally a Busick-Willer theater and then Boshoven-Busick operated for a long time. A note here on the spelling of Busick. Joe Busick spelled his name variously as Busic, Busik and Busick.

I have, for the sake of consistency, used the spelling he was using when he finished his over 50 years of the movie house business in the Detroit area.

I remember going to the the theater there was always two movies and a serial that kept you coming back each week to see what was happening in the serial. Also what stood out to me was when I attended the theater back in the 50's the owner sold donuts along with the candy and popcorn.
