Husband-and-wife owners of Leon & Lulu, Mary Liz Curtin and Stephen Scannell, bought a former movie theater next to their store in Clawson five years ago. Last year, that theater opened as The Show at Leon & Lulu, a quirky store selling greeting cards, custom framing, Michigan-made products, unique furniture, and Detroit’s Theatre Bizarre merchandise. The front of The Show has now become Three Cats Cafe, an Art Deco-inspired lunch spot with soups, sandwiches, pastries, and delectable coffees.
The old 1940s theater is brought back to life as black & white movies play all day while customers shop, dine, and sit with friends. The menu is updated daily and offers “fresh and light” foods.
