This theater goes back to the 1950's at least and ran up until the 1970's including a stint as a porn theater. In 1955 Alex Perry (the owner), planned on building a drive-in in that community also. I find no record of that ever coming to fruition however. It's difficult to say how well a drive-in would have fared up there, the season in the UP is so short due to weather.
I was up there in 2003 and the old Midway was sitting empty at that time. Like an idiot I didn't note the address and it has taken some detective work to figure out where it was exactly. The old Canon digital camera I had back then didn't have any GPS built in. I would get back home and go through hundreds of photos trying to remember where the hell I was when I took them!
Ultimately, I zoomed in and enhanced the ONE photo I had and picked up some clues. Extensive looks at vintage aerials and current street views reveals the theater was demolished some time after 2015. A Dollar General now sits on the site. I am using the address of the Dollar General to indicate where this place was for now.
