General Information:

Update Jan 13, 2024: Meredith McCulley has let me know the old Royall Theatre building still stands at 312 S Main. Mesa Tacos and Tequila occupies the space as of 2024. I have added a street view photo below.

The info for this theatre came from one of the master lists of theaters that have been around forever. I don't have much on it other than the historical photo.

Just saw this one listed in an old Michigan Film Review archive apparently listed as both the Royal and the Royale. Presumably same place? There was a Royal Oak area telephone directory circa 1990s that had a photo on the cover that pictured the theater pretty clearly. At the time, I called up the man who provided the photo and as I recall, he said it was on Main, south end. From what I recall, it was west side of the street and south of 4th somewhere. He knew exactly where it had been.

The Royall Theatre was located in this building in 1914 and was on the west side of Main Street between 3rd and 4th streets.
