Update 8-16-2023: According to the Clarkston News the old Clarkston Cinema is being redeveloped for use as a Credit Union. There were no details on whether the structure would be saved and remodeled or demolished to make way for a new building.
From Cinema Treasures:
The Clarkston Cinema opened on June 28, 1972 with Sophia Loren in “Sunflower”. The Clarkston Cinema was the second franchised location of the United General Theaters in the Detroit area following the previous week’s opening of the Milford Cinema. United General had announced 11 locations which would open before year’s end. The automated mini-cinema circuit went out of business but the Clarkston Cinema soldiered on before closing on July 31, 1986 with Walt Disney’s “The Great Mouse Detective”.
