The Ken Theatre, which opened in August 1947, was a unique design incorporating an arched roof Quonset-style building. It was located at 195 E. Jefferson Street in Frankenmuth, Michigan. The style of the entrance as seen in my grandfather's June 1948 color slide is very similar to that of several other Johnson theater projects. The Cinema Treasures website says "Built in 1947, from ground breaking to opening day was 12 weeks. Cost was $27,000.00."
