General Information:

Source: Andy Gray

The RIC Theatre was the second Johnson Construction Company project in Richmond, Michigan. Like the Majestic, the CinemaTours website only provides the name of the "RIC Theatre" in "Richmond, MI" and that it's closed. I could find no other mention of the RIC online. My grandfather Al Johnson took two slides of the RIC Theatre and labeled them: "RIC - BLDG" and "RIC - INT. OPENING."

The first slide, showing a new cinder block building under construction with wooden rafters, is dated August 1948. The second slide (the interior view on opening night), is dated January 1949. It shows my other grandfather Robie Gray, who worked on several theater and drive-in jobs for Al Johnson, standing in work clothes between two suited gentlemen. The date that the slide was developed suggests that the RIC opened sometime between December 1948 and January 1949. It would be very interesting if someone with a connection to Richmond were to recognize one of the two men, or could provide a street address or any other information on either the Majestic or RIC Theatres!
