Long Description:
Remodeled sometime in the 30s in an Art Deco style, including a new facade and tall vertical marquee, the Senate continued to operate until 1958 when it was closed.

The former theater was acquired by the Detroit Theater Organ Society in 1963 who renovated it and reduced seating from 1200 to about 900. The Club moved the former Fisher Theater organ from the Iris Theater, where it was briefly kept in 1961-2, to the Senate.

Since then, the Senate has been home to the DTOS, and features organ concerts. It no longer has its projection equipment, so unlike the Redford, which features organ concerts and classic motion pictures, the Senate is now a concert hall only.
