General Information:

From Cinema Treasures

The Roseville Theatre opened in 1927 drawing thousands of people to the corner of Utica Road and Gratiot Avenue. It had a long and successful life but when the era of multiscreen multiplexes emerged, the single screen Roseville Theatre struggled and closed in 1996.

Seven years later, John Kurczak, the owner of the building, began restoring the theatre and building. He had the floors leveled, installed new lighting, imnproved wheel chair accessibility and built new restrooms and a concession area. New projection and sound equipment were installed.

He wants to utilize the building when movies are not playing. On Friday and Saturday nights part of the upstairs becomes a dance club for teens. The lower level including the movie theatre can be rented for receptions, conferences and gatherings. It reopened on April 25, 2003 with a smaller screen and a new atmosphere. In 2005 it was operating as a church.
