In the early `50`s this was our nearest theatre. We lived in Romulus,Michigan across from what is now Detroit Metro Airport. We`d hop on a bus which would drop us off near the show. Saturday nights were big, because it was `screeno` night. This was a projected spinner on a screen, and if your number came up you yelled out `SCREENO`and came up on stage and collected your prize. The parking lot would be overflowing, so cars parked in the median on Michigan Avenue. A cement company sits on that spot now.

Around 1970, the Melody Theatre was used for a few rock and roll shows. I saw a couple of the shows. I imagine that the long time adult theatre reputation of the place deterred kids from coming to the shows.

Once was a movie theater with occasional church services held on Sunday, the theater was last used as an adult theater. It was eventually shut down by the city for illegal activity, and was considered non-salvageable and was demolished.
