The 1,500-seat Wyandotte Main Theatre was opened in August 1938. The 800-seat Wyandotte Annex Theatre was built adjacent to the main theatre and opened on January 1, 1942 with Ronald Colman in “My Life With Caroline” & “Burma Cowboy”. They were the biggest first run movie theaters in the “Downriver” area of Metro Detroit. [Cinema Treasures]
The Wyandotte was demolished in 2007 after efforts at revival failed to materialize. I was fortunate to attend a few films there back in the 1990's. The main auditorium was gigantic and it was a treat to see a film on a screen that large. [Webmaster]
