WYANDOTTE MI MOVIE THEATER photo picture print photograph photography for sale. Old Vintage Detroit WYANDOTTE MI MOVIE THEATER sepia toned black and white photo picture fine-art prints for sale. This vintage old WYANDOTTE MOVIE THEATER photo picture fine-art print is made from the professionally restored original black and white vintage old Wyndotte Theatre original negative/print.
The beautiful Art Deco style Wyandotte Theater, shown here in this ca. 1950's rare photo, was built and opened in 1936 at 102 Elm St. in Wyandotte, MI. It was one of the first theaters of its kind to have two seperate theatres built side by side. It went through several incarnations including 'Wyandotte Majestic' and the 'Wyandotte Rialto' and as the 'Trillium Performing Arts Center.' The historical rare photo offered here shows it in its prime as The Wyandotte Theater with vinitage vehicles parked in front of it on the curb. On the marquee in this Wyandotte Theater photo we see a billing of a double feature---the 1950 film BRIGHT LEAF stars Lauren Bacall and Gary Cooper as a man who is driven to rewrite the past in this tale of love and revenge in tobacco country. The 2nd feature film stars Gordon Macraw in RETURN OF THE FRONTIERSMAN. This is a wonderful historical photo of this beautiful structure which holds fond memories for the theater going folks of that area as well as anyone who loves the old time neighborhood theaters.
