The Streamline Moderne style Pix Theatre was built in 1941, with a seating capacity for 512, all on a single floor. It closed in 1996 when it could no longer compete with the local multiplexes.

After being bought and restored by the city of Lapeer in 1997, the downtown Pix Theatre is showing movies again and serving as a focal point for local arts and community activities.

Today, the small, 306-seat theater is doing well financially and may not need city and state grants in the near future. Most of the Pix Theatre’s income is currently derived from its second-run film showings and theater rental fees.

Hello :) Could someone please email with schedule information for the Pix and any other fun events in the Lapeer area? I’ve been trying to find info online on what’s going on around here and I’m having no luck. My hubby and I surprise each other once a month with a date nite that’s kept totally secret. I am also wondering how to get a schedule for music on the courthouse lawn, water tower events, and kiwanis caper dramas. I have MS and have lost my mobility, but I just got my scooter and I’m ready to roll when warm weather finally hits. Every aspect of our lives has changed this year and my health has become very poor. My husband just keeps telling me that I’m beautiful. I’m so blessed. Twelve years of marriage and we are still best friends. We love drama, music of all types, and light-hearted fun… We love to pack a picnic basket and enjoy just being together. Any ideas are welcome… Romance lives! L Parsons.

This theater just dodged a bullet – according to Lapeer’s fire chief,a fire that gutted some adjacent buildings caused minor smoke and water damage to the Pix: http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/story/23950812/multi-building-fire-in-lapeers-downtown-historic-district
