Update for Wednesday, February 21, 2024

I have been continuing my data cleanup and adding new info and photos along the way. Some of the entries I had for Detroit Theaters were either dupes or non-existent. The online newspaper archives for Detroit are very extensive so if a theater doesn't show up in those, chances are it probably never existed. Some of the lists all of the theater buffs use have sketchy information on them.
