Star Theatres built the Gratiot 10 screen theatre in 1990. After releasing how busy the theatre was, Star decided to add an additional 5 screens in the early 90s, while also significantly lengthening the lobby and building a second concession stand. The second phase of expansion took place in 1998 with an additional 6 screens that were added in the north wing.
All auditoriums were converted to stadium seating at the time, and the lobby was given a light facelift. The final phase took place starting in 2004 with a complete lobby renovation to update the the concession and box offices. The concession stand was expanded, a hot food menu was included, and the box office re-positioned. Many other on-going facelifts are also taking place at the theatre, such as re-upholstered seats and a new lobby floor.
