Movie Theaters >> Armada Theatre


Address: First and Main
City: Armada State: MI Zip: Phone:  
County: Macomb
Notes:

Newspapers mention a theater (the Community) back in the 1920's and then another house being built in 1947 as being the "first" theater to be built there.

There is a "theater-looking" building near the corner mentioned in the article. However, there is also an empty lot on that corner. More research is needed.
