OMG, wow. I remember the Royal it was on the west side of Saginaw St., north of the Capitol and Palace theaters.I barely remember it because my parents used to work at a dry cleaners on Saginaw St. about a couple of miles north of the Royal.As a kid I'd go to work with them and walk downtown(in the early to mid 60's)to go to the Palace or Capitol to see a movie or shop.
The Royal was a early adult theater,i remember lots of creeps hanging around the front.Weirdo's,one time i walked on that side of Saginaw St. past it,got a bit scared and never walked past it again,always on the other side of it! LOL.
