The Studio New Center opened on June 22, 1966 with the film "The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming!" and was jointly operated by Edward Schuman and Suburban Detroit Theaters. It was (incorrectly) advertised as "the first movie theater to be built in Detroit in 16 years." The theater eventually closed and its new owner, the Henry Ford Hospital, used it as a lecture hall for student nurses. Later, a theater group moved in and renamed it the Attic, with its first production in 1984.
