Hi there old friend, Just an update to the Allen Park 5, owned by the chain I have been working for almost 14 years at, MJR Theatres. They're closing it for good on Thursday, 10/10. Donating it to the city of Allen Park if they can. There are numerous articles, in the Freep and Crain's and WWJ. Check it out. Hope you are well and thanks for keeping the site rolling all these years! Kim Connell Warren, MI.

Opened in 1940 as a single-screen, Art Moderne style house seating over 1600, the Allen Park was designed by the firm of Bennett & Straight. Later, the Allen Park was run by Nicholas George as the first of many theaters under his operation during the 60s and 70s, such as the Mai Kai in Livonia, the Americana in Southfield and (briefly) the Michigan, in downtown Detroit. The Allen Park was twinned as the Allen Park I & II in 1970. In 1986, George sold the twin to the AMC chain, who would later carve the theater further, into five screens. Today operated by the MJR chain, as the Allen Park Cinemas, the theater now is a bargain house screening second-run fare.
