ROYAL OAK, Mich. – The future of Royal Oak’s Main Art Theatre is in the hands of the planning commission, with a final meeting planned for Tuesday night.
Opening in 1941, known for showcasing independent film, the theatre closed last summer, and now a proposed plan will turn it into a mixed-use housing development, turning the well-known marquee into rubble.
The non-profit, Friends of the Main Art, have been rallying to save the theatre from its planned demise.
The vote is scheduled to take place around 7 p.m. on Tuesday night.
