Jack Loeks-Powers Theater
Posted in the Grand Rapids Forum

When I think of Jack Loeks, I think of the old Powers Theater where Jack ran "News Reels". His family is now in the process of demolishing the large theater complex on 28th street; I do not know if people in Grand Rapids realize the amount of effort that certain individuals put forth to create entertainment in this community; this would include Phil Simons who was responsible for putting together the Statium entertainment project; the neighborhood theaters reflected a lot of individuality--The Libery Theater, Madison Square Theater, Franklin and Division Theater, Wealthy Street Theater, and the Savoy owned by the Goodrich family.

Not to mention Floyd Bloss' Burton Capri.
