Detroit Now & Then: Decay

Eastown Theater, 1930 and 2013

The Eastown theater went through several different lives: First as a movie theater in the 1940's, then as a music venue in the 1970's, and lastly as a setting for raves and electronic music in the 1990's. After the attached apartment complex burned down in 2010, the theater fell into further disrepair, and now awaits demolition.
