My great uncle, Morriss Teitel was the original and only owner of the Warfield. He opened a nickelodeon in 1914, several years after arriving in Detroit from Ostrow Poland. In the mid thirties he rebuilt it as the theater shown in the photos. He was forced to close the theater by the State of Michigan as some of the land was being taken for the construction of the Chrysler Freeway (I-75). The 1914 Det Free Press also lists a Warfield Theater at 1030 Hastings.
