This was on Saginaw Street, south of the downtown area. When I got transferred to Flint in August of 1975, the Michigan Theatre and its ajoining store-fronts appeared to have been closed and boarded up for quite some time. It still had the marquee and a large blade sign spelling out ‘MICHIGAN’ with white letters on a faded blue background, and looked to be a Balaban & Katz style of sign, although this was never one of their theatres. It was a very substantial building, built of a light brown brick. I never got a chance to find out anything about it because it was demolished around October 1975.
