The second historic Michigan theater we'll look at today is the Oakdale Theatre in Hazel Park.
My uncle's list of Johnson Construction Company theater jobs indicates two projects associated with this theater. One job was simply identified as "original" and the second job was completed in 1947.
My grandad Al Johnson left behind just one Kodachrome slide with a street view of the theater taken in December 1949.
This picture of the theatre brings back a lot of memories. My family moved to this area in 1950, from Arkansas. I would go to the theatre twice a week with my brother every time the movies changed. the tickets cost $.15 for kids, & $.50 ea for adults.
