There were other theatres in Hamtamck, but the Farnum and Martha Washington were the A film theatres. The Farnum was next door to a Better Made store and the chips were great. In the 50's they had a live monster show, Frankenstein, Dracula, etc. which scared us and made the walk home less pleasant. The smaller theatres were the Star and the Campau.

They showed older movies, lots of westerns and occassionally a Polish language movie.

I remember the Farnum very well. I saw Gorgo there with my dad and brother in the 60''s. I remember the price being 25 cents. Our allowance was 50 cents then so we had two bits left for candy.

I remember going to the Farnum to see The House on Haunted Hill. I don''t remember the ticket price but I know it was always very cheap. It was located at 9048 Joseph Campau, on the east side of the street, about a block south of the old White Star Theater.
