General Information:

The Towne opened in August 1967. I went there a few times in the 80's. it was a pretty non-descript place, typical of the early multi-plexes that were springing up back then. It was known to be one of the first theaters in the area to feature long-term engagements of Rocky Horror Picture Show with the attendant fans with their props and antics.

From Cinema Treasures

The Towne Theatre was located at 11 Mile Road and Greenfield Road, next to K-Mart. It opened August 17, 1967. I worked there when it changed from 1st to 2nd run, the night after “Dances with Wolves” won Oscar for best picture. On February 17, 1971 it reopened as the Towne Twin Theatre. It became a 4-screeen theatre on April 27, 1984, it was taken over by AMC in 1986. It was later closed and demolished. An Aldi supermarket now stands on the site.

During the first decade of its existence, the Towne was an excellent single screen, first-run theater showing features such as Lenny, The Man Who Would Be King and Days of Heaven and a choice re-release of Giant. The Towne was a seven mile trip from my home, but well worth it.

Where the Towne once stood before, an Aldi stands there today.
