General Information:

Source: Cinema Treasures

Designed by H.D. Ilgenfritz and opened in 1928, this small 550-seat theater operated as a 24-hour house, and was popular with second-and-third shift workers. Its most notable feature was its large vertical marquee, towering over the unassuming facade, and topped by a circle with a bright red star in it, its name spelled out below. After nearly three decades in operation, the Loop was closed in 1956 and has since been razed.

Info Updates:

June 1959 - The two houses that remain in the old Associated Theatres operation, may vanish soon. The Loop is scheduled for razing in a downtown rehabilitation program now coming before the Detroit Common Council, and the suburb of River Rouge is thinking of razing the Rouge Theatre for a new civic center.
