Forgotten Detroit
United Artists Theater
The ua in photos
Today Detroit can claim one of the greatest theater districts in the world, even surpassing that of Chicago. This is thanks to the City's economic downturns of the 70's and 80's that left many of its theaters intact, rather then parking lots. As a result the Detroiters of today can enjoy the same opulant movie palaces that their grandparents enjoyed.

Unfortunately, one of these theaters still sits empty, its potential unrealized. On the following pages you will learn the story of the fabulous United Artists Theater of Detroit.
