April 1959 - The sixth art film house has made its debut here, with Julius and Raymond Gugala converting the Mars in Hamtramck into the Mars International for the showing of all-color films. The opening feature was "Alaska, the Great Land," a particularly timely subject as Detroiters followed with much interest the adventures of their onetime neighbors, the 59ers who went to Alaska for homesteading.
