  • Royal Oak's longstanding Main Art Theatre is no more, according to its marquee.

Metro Detroit's movie-going experience just got a lot less indie, as the Main Art Theatre in Royal Oak says "goodbye" after 80 years of service to the community.

On the marquee of the theater on Saturday, the message read, "Landlord kicked us out. It’s been a fun ride -Main Art Crew RIP 1941-2021."
