Wayne Theatre to be torn down if money not raised

WAYNE, MI — The 1927 Wayne Theatre located at 35164 Michigan Avenue, needs your help.

The theater is in danger of demolition by the city of Wayne. For the past few years, volunteers have been removing old walls put up from a music store, and holding concerts on the front lawn in an attempt to raise money to restore the venue. Unfortunately, attendance was very low at the concerts and the city has stated that if the non-profit that owns the theater does not fix the bricking of the theater and have a funding plan in place, they will tear down the theater.

$30,000 is needed to buy more time to get the rest of the money raised, and $60,000 will fund research into grants to restore the theater.

As a volunteer at the theater, I encourage you and your friends to help donate to a worthy cause. Help to restore this beautiful theater into a showplace for the entire community of Southeastern Michigan. If every member on the site donated $5, we could make this goal happen and save the theater. More information on our theater is located at this web site as well as donation information. Donations can be made by paypal, mail(check, money order).
