OLD TEMPLE MOVIE & VAUDEVILLE THEATER Detroit black and white photo picture print photography for sale. This sepia toned OLD TEMPLE MOVIE THEATER Detroit photo print was made from a professionally restored original black and white historic vintage Old Temple Theatre photo of this early Detroit movie theater. The dates of operation for this theater are not entirely clear, but this is a wonderful photo of the fabulous lurid advertising used in the front of The Temple Theater in 1928 at the dawn of the sound era in moving pictures in Detroit. The theater was located in Campus Martius adjacent to the Old Detroit Opera House. You can see an early moving billboard, an innovation in advertising, parked in front of the old Detroit Temple Theatre in 1928 advertising 'Pitfalls of Passion for Men Only'. Bold advertising art was used to draw in the viewers of these early establishments. This is an excellent example of that type of advertising in this classic early era Detroit Theater. Other 1920's vehicles are seen parked in the street. For most of its life, The Detroit Temple Theatre was the most popular vaudeville theater in Detroit, until a policy switch to talking films in 1928, the year of this historic photograph. The film advertised here 'Pitfalls Of Passion' was a phenomenal success, but afterwards, the Temple Theater struggled with a diversified schedule of films and special events.

The quality of the Jan Kaulins' photographic prints is much higher than we can show within limits of this web site. Slight tonal changes and blurring around the areas of strong contrast are a result of the JPEG compression process, and are not part of the high quality originals.
