The Frauenthal

After the Symphony


This is Muskegon’s  Frauenthal. She was built in 1929 as the Michigan Theater and billed as a “100% all talking motion pictures theater” for the princely sum of $690,000. That was a lotta popcorn back in the days before income tax.

  1. I love theatres, especially the ornate decor and heavy curtains. I feel I can get lost in the folds. It’s an interesting part of your city’s history. Thank you for sharing it. x
