This was the Butterfield chain's exploitation theater in Grand Rapids. It always ran double features, and, in the fifties, mainly ran horror/slasher/Japanese monster films. This was a fine old vaudeville house on lower Monroe that had fallen on hard times and was still trying to stay in business until it was demolished in urban renewal. What a waste.
