SAGINAW, MI — Looking back at 2013, several theaters in Michigan’s Saginaw Bay region had a year full of transitions.

In Vassar, the 76-year-old Vassar Theatre had a close call. Unable to afford a digital projector on its own, it had a successful Kickstarter campaign which surpassed its goal allowing it to survive.

But in Midland, the Studio M closed in December, unable to afford digital projectors for its screens and suffering declining business.

In Saginaw, Goodrich Quality Theatres broke ground on the Quality 10 GDX adjacent to their Saginaw 12 which first opened in 1974 as the Quad. The Saginaw 12 will close on January 12 and the Quality 10 GDX which replaces it will open on January 17.

In Bay City, Goodrich Quality Theatres announced the expansion of their Bay City 8 with two additional screen expected to open this summer.
