The Florence originally opened in 1913 and was remodeled and enlarged to seat over 800 six years later by Christian W. Brandt, who went on to design Detroit theaters such as the Cinderella, its sister the Roosevelt, and the Senate. In 1914, the Florence received the unusual new name of Your Theatre, and remained in operation into the early 50s. It has long since been demolished.
