Shorpy Saturday – Boots and Saddles: 1909

By Jeffrey Buck

Detroit has a long heritage of Theatres dating back to the early 1900s. Many of the theatres have survived the ups and downs of Detroit including the beautiful Fox Theatre, built in 1928, the Detroit Opera House, built in 1922, and the Music Hall, built in 1928. the oldest surviving theatre from Detroit’s first district is the National Theatre, which stands empty and neglected today. With the renovation of several theatres in Detroit, including the newly announced Gardner Theatre renovation, there are still several that are need of much help to survive.
