Constructed in 1911 for vaudeville and live theater, Wealthy Theatre -- which sits on Wealthy Street, in Grand Rapids, Michigan -- later became a neighborhood movie house. It served as a warehouse for the Michigan Aircraft Company during World War I, and in the 1960s, offered the only regional venue for foreign films. It closed in the late 1970s and stood empty and decaying for many years. In 1987, the City of Grand Rapids slated the Wealthy Theatre for demolition. At this point, the South East Economic Development neighborhood association mobilized to save the theatre. The theatre was designated a City Historic Landmark and a capital campaign was launched to fund its restoration. Wealthy Theatre re-opened in 1998 as a community arts center and brought about a transformation of the Wealthy Street business district. 

 

The Theatre closed again in mid-2004 while the Board of Directors searched for a nonprofit organization which would oversee the growth and revitalization of the theatre and its neighborhood. The Community Media Center acquired Wealthy Theatre and today, the Wealthy Theatre Complex is not only a historic landmark and community treasure, but operates as a mixed-use facility, capable of hosting live music, film, theatre and dance.
