When it opened in 1928, the Redford Theatre was named “America’s Most Unique Suburban Playhouse.” Designed with a Japanese motif, the theatre’s original character is maintained whilst being supported by modern-day features. Its three-story grand foyer, full-size stage, capacity for 1,610 guests, state-of-the-art dimmer system, and Barton organ are only the beginning when it comes to exemplifying the beauty of this historic venue in Detroit.
The Detroit Masonic Temple was completed in 1926. George Mason, an American architect, designed The Masonic’s lobby taking inspiration from a castle he had visited in Palermo, Sicily. The impressive light fixtures, decorative arches, and plaster decorations were designed by Corrado Parducci—an Italian-American architectural sculptor. With several breathtaking spaces available for rent throughout the building, The Masonic is a one-of-a-kind venue.
