My parents Max and Patricia Hayward were the owners of the Castle in 1967, I was eleven years. What great memories and so much fun we had,, my Dad with the help of his eldest son Gene and their love for music had great dreams for the Castle. Max always thought it would such a great place for young people to hang out and to dance and listen to all the great bands that came and played. My parents also had the little place next door. They opened as the a little take out place. I remember all the teenagers coming in to both our places. My parents are both deceased now, but seeing this has bought back alot of great times,, thanks for mentioning the Castle on your web page. Cathy.

Theater was closed approximately 1966-67. During the early 1960's Ed Kroll, Hamtramck Police Officer owned the Home Theater When the theater became the Castle, the owner last name was DeCocco. Detroit own Rationals played there. The Puzzed Corner Band opened for them. When the Castle closed, Pluzzed Corner Band was the last name on the Marquee until the building was torn down for G.M. Pole Town

In 1967 & 68 the theater turned into a teenage night club called the Castle. The neighborhood loved it, it gave the kids place to go. It was a tough neighborhood, and I always managed to get into a fight. I believe the owners name was Howard Hayward. My band (Von Dutch Inc.) played there in 67 & 68, and I took all the promotional pictures. Attached is a picture of the interior. I do have a negative of the outside marquee and the name New Home Theater above. If I can find a photo lab that can make a print from a B&W sheet film negative I will send it. Today the entire neighborhood is torn down and the Poletown Cadillac plant is there today.
