Section 199 ( Former Michigan Theater in Detroit )
( EXPLORED!!! ) A shot inside the historic Michigan Theater, which is now a parking garage. It was built in 1926 by architects Rapp & Rapp and once held 4050 people, second only to the Fox Theater in attendance in our city. It closed as a theater in 1970 and became a live music venue, closing again in 1976. At first I was sad about the condition of this building. I did some research and frankly this building would have been demolished had it not been made into a parking garage. Is it better to be a diamond that doesn't shine so brightly but has a practical purpose, or one that is part of an empty field....
