The theater ceased operations after its last closing in 1976 under the name of The Michigan Palace. Only the office building is still in use.
After the closing of the theater, the office tenants were threatening to leave unless they recieved adequate parking. To keep them, the owner had the theater gutted and converted into a parking structure.
Upon its completion the theater could seat 4,038 patrons.
The Michigan Building occupies the site where Henry Ford built his first car, the Quadricycle, in 1896.
