Exterior view of the Riviera Theater on Grand River Avenue in Detroit, Michigan. Designed by architect John Eberson designed in an "atmospheric/Italian Renaissance style, and resembled a palazzo, complete with a spectacular auditorium decorated to look like an outdoor courtyard. Its soaring grand lobby was equally stunning, complete with a grand marble staircase and not one but three great arched windows over front doors. A four-story vertical marquee spelled out the theater's name boldly over Grand River Avenue," from Cinema Treasures web site. The theater which could seat 2800 people opened in 1925 and was demolished in 1999.
