Franklinschoolgirl is right. It did become a church shortly after closing. I hung at a ELM park right around the corner.

This theater was possibly used as a church after it closed. I remember having a Sunday school class in the projection room. My dad took me to see Bambi at the Globe.

Smaller house that was among many along Grand River Avenue, it lasted longer than most.
