After visiting the Eastown Theater in Detroit many times with great awe and wonder since 2007, the fun came to an end in November. Having withstood hoards of scavengers over the years, the final remains of the Eastown came down at last in a giant pile of plaster and rebar. The roof had collapsed earlier that year and the glamorous venue had already been stripped to the bones. I’m very sad to see it go. The last trip, just a couple of days before its demolition, was as surreal as always in this beautiful and fucked-up ruin. Here are a few last photos – more to follow.
