Cadieux Stage was built in 1937 and was the home of Wilding Studios for many years. During that time the company filmed countless industrial films and commercials for a long list of corporate and government clients. Notable musicians that have worked at Cadieux include Aretha Franlkin, Bob Seger, Grand Funk Railroad, Paul Shafer, Gloria Estefan & more.

In 2022, their team began a renovation of the Cadieux Stage to bring it into the 21st century and become a premiere location for production and events in Detroit. “We are excited to be part of the East Warren/East English Village neighborhood and to support local creative and community groups,” said current owner, Chris.
