WYOMING, Mich. (AP) -- The demolition of a well-known movie theater in western Michigan is attracting picture-takers and souvenir-seekers.
Michael Arnold says it was "horrible" to watch crews tear apart Studio 28 in the Grand Rapids-area community of Wyoming, but he says he had to witness it. The 45-year-old Jenison man saw "Star Wars" there as a child and he recalled it was his first movie in a theater.
The Grand Rapids Press reports (http://bit.ly/NSVVLA ) Arnold was among those who stopped by Tuesday to watch exterior demolition begin. Some walked away with bricks.
Arnold snapped images on his cellphone to send to a friend.
The property, which has sat empty for six years, was condemned by the city of Wyoming in December. Plans call for redevelopment at the site.
