Harpos Concert Theatre - TicketWeb

Harpos Concert Theatre

The TicketWeb Inside Scoop

Opened Dec.2, 1939 for the Wisper-Watsman Theatres circuit. The Harper Theatre was designed by Charles N. Agree in Art Moderne style. The theatre was complete with an 80 ft vertical sign spelling the theatre's name (which could be seen for blocks up and down Harper Avenue)

The Harper Theatre cost about $299,000 to build, and was at the time one of the most modern looking theatres to open in Detroit. It also featured murals in the lobby and auditorium by Thomas di Lorenzo. It was converted into a nightclub in the 1970's. The Saturday Night Fever dance floor still exists and all lights up.

Currently is the home to Harpos Concert Theatre, the premier venue for heavy-metal and industrial rock bands in Detroit.
