If you are in your car on Brockway, stopped for the light at Gratiot, you are looking at what used to be the old Marr Theater. It was built in 1938 by George E Marr, I guess it’s obvious how the theater got its name. The 725 seat grand old theater had a Mayan Temple theme, with a large marque on the front facing Gratiot. I am not exactly sure when it closed, but I think it was in the late 1950’s around the time when Saginaw residents were getting their entertainment from the television, instead of the movies. Sometime later after it closed, it was converted into a shopping plaza with a bridal boutique and a comic book store.
P.S one more fact about this place is I used to work here, no not when it was a theater, I ain’t that old, but in the late 90’s I worked for a company that engineered automotive tooling and test equipment. The old building still has the upstairs projector room.
