Notes:

This theater goes back to the 1930's at least. This may have been the earlier Maxine Theatre under a different name also. I have added some articles on that theater here until I can figure out of they were the same or separate houses.

Aprin 1959 Issue - Harold Muir has left the Midway Theatre at Davison, which he has managed for the past five years, during a period when the house has gained a reputation among showmen for building up the business to one the state's really profitable operations. The Midway will be managed by John R. Hobolth, former owner and manager of the De Luxe Theatre in Imlay City, who also is one of the heirs of the estate of the late Mrs. Harry Hobolth. The house was established by the late Harry Hobolth as one of the major units of his well-known circuit. "The Theatre is still putting out the SRO sign occasionally and doing a very satisfactory business," Muir said. Muir reports no immediate plans for activity. He formerly managed the De Luxe for 15 years, and for 12 years operated an educational film service in 83 schools.

The actual name of the theater in dowtown Imlay City was the Deluxe. My WIfes Great Uncle Woody was the owner for many years, we have a framed give away hanging in our kitchen. The building was torn down many years ago after it was deemed unsafe, and given to the City, there is now a bank and some offices in the same spot.
