It is easy to understand why the Fisher Building is usually called “Detroit’s largest art object”
The original theater was designed to look like a Mayan temple with carvings of jungle animals with glowing red eyes.
Real parrots and live macaws were free to roam around the lobby
In the early 60s the theater was refurbished and replaced with a smaller live performance venue.
