This theater is a classic movie palace, opening on January 5, 1928 with seating for 1,841 and located near the University of Michigan.
During a recent restoration, the 1,700 seat Michigan Theater added a second 200 seat screen next to the main auditorium, and installed a new marquee to replace the older, 1950’s-era marquee (seen at right). This new marquee reveals much more of the theater’s facade, instead of hiding it. The theater retains its original Barton theater organ, installed in 1928.
