The Belvil Theatre was built by a Dr. E. S. Alford and opened on August 8, 1940. Its longtime operator was William Kirchner. By March of 1960, Kirchner had cut its schedule to three days per week. The Belvil Theatre closed permanently in December 1967, and today the structure is called the Professional Building though its origins as a theatre are unmistakable.

I currently live in Belleville and find it really weird that unlike most other Michigan cities of this size where we have everything fast food and supercenters like Meijer, we for some reason don't have a movie theater at all. You have to go over to Canton or Ypsilanti for the closest cinema. It's weird.
