3/2/2021 - Andy Gray
Today I'll highlight two old Michigan theaters for which my grandfather Al Johnson's company was the general contractor. The Fowler Theatre stood at 225 N. Main Street in Fowler, Michigan - a small community just west of St. Johns on M-21. My uncle A.S. Johnson Jr's records show that the Johnson Construction Company worked on the theater in 1940 and again in 1947. Al Johnson's slides show an image of the front of the building dated May 1948. A Roy Rogers movie "The Gay Ranchero" is listed on the marquee. Several slides with interior views of the theater, including a rare view of the concessions area, were dated May and September 1949. The gentleman seen in one of the images isn't a family member, so I'm guessing that he was the theater manager in 1949. The Cinema Treasures website provides this history: "This short-lived theatre was erected shortly after World War II, and dismantled in 1951. The theatre’s seats were moved to the Howell Theatre in Howell. Today the building serves as offices and a meeting room for the Village of Fowler."
