There were other theatres in Hamtamck, but the Farnum and Martha Washington were the A film theatres. The Farnum was next door to a Better Made store and the chips were great. In the 50's they had a live monster show, Frankenstein, Dracula, etc. which scared us and made the walk home less pleasant. The smaller theatres were the Star and the Campau. They showed older movies, lots of westerns and occassionally a Polish language movie.
