Walking through time, and reminiscing the music, the arts and the history, Grand Circus Park Historic District in Detroit, Michigan is where to be. On the corners of Broadway Street and Madison Street at Grand Circus Park sits The Detroit Opera House. Due to its location in the popular theatre district and the financial district of Downtown Detroit, booking Detroit Opera House parking ahead of time with BestParking eases your concerns. Built on January 12, 1922, the theatre was the fifth largest theatre in the US during its time, with a seating capacity of 3,500. It had four naming rights changes through its years. It started as the Capitol Theatre, renamed as the Paramount Theatre in 1929 as when it was taken over by the Paramount-Publix chain, and featured live stage shows and vaudeville acts. In 1934, it was changed to the Broadway Capitol Theatre where second-run films and double-features were run. Being purchased by the United Detroit Theaters for renovation and reducing the seat capacity of the theatre it was then named the Grand Circus Theatre in the 1960s where it still featured second-run films. Michigan Opera Theatre purchased the Grand Circus Theatre in 1989 to have it restored to its former glory where C. Howard Crane designed the building with a renaissance style, then reduced its seating capacity to 2,700, and named it the Detroit Opera House. To celebrate its grand opening Michigan Opera Theatre invited Luciano Pavarotti to perform. Since then concerts, musicals, dance tours and films have been featured. With a rich historical background in arts, culture, music and style, it is imperative that booking Detroit Opera House parking ahead of time with BestParking is important, featuring onsite parking.
