Long Description:
Built in 1925, the Fillmore Detroit was known for most of its history as the State Theatre, and prior to that as the Palms Theatre, a movie house in the Renaissance Revival style of architecture. C. Howard Crane was the original architect, and the building is still called the Francis Palms Building. An earlier theatre called the Central that changed its name to the Grand Circus Theatre (1913-1924) once stood at 2115 Woodward Avenue and had been demolished. Then, what is now the The Fillmore Detroit (1925) was constructed at 2115 Woodward. The present Detroit Opera House (1922), originally known as the Capital, at 1526 Broadway Street had also used the name Grand Circus Theatre.
