General Information:

This multiplex was built in 1970 and lasted until 2002. There was a another multiplex across the street. I attended both many times. They were decent for the time but eventually stadium seating came into vogue and National Amusements lost interest in modernizing the chain. Both complexes are now gone.

I spent my "tween" through teen years in Bloomfield Hills (1992-2001.) My friends and I saw tons of movies at the 1-5 and the 6-12! A fun game was to try to figure out which side of the street the movie was playing on.

It was sad when the 1-5 closed but neither Showcase could compete with the new Star multiplexes. I was home for Thanksgiving and drove by the old 1-5 site. It's now a gigantic, bright, multi-level Target. I was floored! I guess I need to come home more often...

I remember while managing the Pontiac Drive In in the mid 70s, the Showcase (only 2 screens then) was our district office for National Amusements - Redstone Management. National owned the Showcases, Miracle Mile, Blue Sky, Pontiac, and Waterford Drive Ins at the time. I happened to be at the Showcase upstairs in the office when Earthquake opened with the Surround sound. The movie was playing and all of a sudden the whole building started shaking, just like an earthquake was hitting. I remember phones and adding machines being shaken off desks and everybody running around in a panic. Looking back, it was kinda funny!! Im still getting some stuff together for the Pontiac, Blue Sky, and Miracle Mile Drive Ins.
