The old movie theaters in Michigan are the stars of this book on Michigan movie theater history. Some of them are still standing, while others are long gone. Each Michigan movie theater is commemorated with a full page of facts and Michigan movie theater photos.

An entire section of the book is devoted to the founding fathers of Michigan’s theater industry, including W.S. Butterfield, William Emmett Goodrich, Jack Loeks, Joseph Poisson, Howard Reynolds (husband of Marie Poisson), Oscar Varneau, and Allen Johnson. A chapter on movie theater architecture includes the work of Thomas Lamb, John Eberson, Howard Crane, and others.
