The Royal Theater at 2300 South Jefferson was built by George Marr sometime in the late 30’s or early 40’s. After the theater closed, it was converted into apartments in the 70’s. Now it’s just another empty lot on the east side since it recently had a date with the wrecking ball.
Because I was a kid that grew up in the suburbs, I am used to driving to the store or the movies or wherever I needed to go, It would be strange to me to have a movie theater in a neighborhood that was within walking distance to your house. I guess times were different back then.
P.S. sorry I have not been posting much lately, I have been busy working on my book for my Lost In Michigan website, I hope to be finished with it soon then I can get back to writing more post for Pure Saginaw.
