The Historic Redford Theatre in Old Redford, Detroit, has been around since the late 20's. In recent years, the Motor City Theatre Organ Society took an interest in the theatre and restored its Japanese/ Deco decor. The original organ is intact and provides intermission music. It's a great place to go see old movies, including silent pictures, and occassionally a recent movie. They even have a Stooges festival for all you Stooges. It's not far from Brightmoor (Blightmoor?) a rough neighborhood, but there is safe & secure parking next to the theatre. And there is a certain charm to Old Redford if you can look into the past...I can still smell my grandpas cigarette and hear the sounds of bowling pins crashing over the the voices of old timers one-uping...It has potential.
