REVIEWS OF Michigan Theater IN Michigan

Rachel Cress

It's a beautiful building! I went for a special movie event.

Brian Goodwin

Cool ambience and nice bar.

diane gohl

Beautiful building. Great movie.

Kamfong Grant

Just a nice place to take a friend or lover / partner for a chill movie night plus there’s lots of bar an restaurant on state Street.

Evan Wenger

Great screenings of special feature films. Art house films, indie films, anime features, and documentaries. Beautiful theatre that also hosts live speakers and occasionally bands (The Decemberists & King Crimson, to name a cou0le). Great staff. Concessions including beer and liquor. Seats are a bit tight for taller guests.

James Juergens

Very diverse film offerings, great mid-size music venue.

Jean Cain

Recently enjoyed the Will Kratts show and it was fabulous, the best I've seen for children. We enjoyed it as much as the kids. If you're an animal lover, check their show out. You won't be sorry. This is a very nice theater! Has lots of style and personality. Comfortable seats and snack bar available during intermissions.

Anthony Lawless

Great acoustics, comfortable seats, highly recommended

Stuart Bas

Nice show.. Average at best staff.. no free parking.. was told with an attitude that I needed to be a member to have parking validated.. Nice live organ music before the movie Love, Gilda started.. great movie

Jennifer Smith

The theater is beautiful and very comfortable compared to most old theaters with traditional seating. The only mediocre thing was the popcorn.

Chris Greene

Only been to theater 1. It's a classic theater (not movie theater) seating (low, deep, and wide, looking up to a stage with a screen). Plays indies or smaller releases earlier or more often than other theaters. Screen and sound are fine but not emersive given the layout. Nice options to have given the movies it shows, wouldn't pick it over a more modern theater if both were showing the same film.

Gary Sieloff

Your first walk and looks pretty good some of the detail work could have been cleaned up a little bit better

In The Eyes

Replaced all the seats with soft red recliners. The theaters are that big but are very nice.

Marian Gregor

A magnificent movie palace! Great snacks too.

Acelynn Moser

Gorgeous interior, loved the shows I've been to!

Walter Shwayder IDSA

Wonderful, beautiful, historic theatre. Good sound system. Easy to get to with parking 1/2 block away. Surrounded by restaurants. Unique films and presentations daily. Cheap for students and seniors.

Josh Burdick

Rachel Barton Pine (and AA Symphony) played awesomely!

Joan Lutovsky

Nice old fashioned theater. Handicap accessible. Only downside is Parking

Rami Beddiar

Was there for the AAFF. Elegant old theater with a lot of history & character.

Terry Darling

Good concert venue...Amos Lee was awesome!

Ryan Younan

Good acoustics.

jason cavender

Beautiful space. Helpful friendly staff.

Sam Gurwin

Saw Jaws there. Not too bad but it was more expensive them I thought. Also not as classy as I heard it was. Nice Organ before the movie and introduction to this Movie series by a Rep. of the Theatre. I won't go outta my way to go (it was a 45 minute drive). Actually I have more fun at my normal theater. Not bad but not too special.

Lynda Gould

Such a beautiful theater! Love seeing movies there!

julia marenghi

Amazing films, great sound quality, and tasty popcorn

David H

This was a great place for Anos Lee show!

Gavin Siver

Rocky Horror Picture Show was the best! The theater even allowed shadow casting which they have not allowed for years!

Alice 86ed

It was fun how the guy played the piano before the movie started. Very unique and different. The building is beautiful and you feel quite classic being there. If I lived closer I would see shows there regularly. It reminds me of the Sun theater in GL, but with pizazz. Hopefully I can return again one day.

Nice Price II

Located near Maynard. The michigan theater plays a variety of Cinematic masterpieces. Big place, great place for children, dates. Some nights prices are half off and EVEN FREE! thank you michigan theater

Irene Felicetti

I love this grand, old theater. The Screening Room is a great place to watch a movie. They also bring in some amazing bands.

Felicia Jones

Beautiful Theatre but the show was awful!

Carolyn Christopher

Love old fashioned organ music? You can hear the historic Barton Organ before movies. Great selection of movies and special events. Membership offers special pricing & 2 hours local free parking.

Tom Macaulay

A WONDERFUL evening out with my wife, as we saw a GREAT movie, "RBG"! The movie was shown in an intimate theater("Annex?") and the seats were fine, sound at a comfortable level and not over air- conditioned. This theater is a classic place, near the campus and many fine restaurants and coffee shops. All in all, a fun "vibe" permeated the entire time and experience.

Shawn P.

Great place. Always nice here. Love it.

Thomas Nichols

Nice, classy/classic atmosphere. Average priced drinks and snacks for a theatre. Unfortunately cramped seats... but that's almost expected at an old theatre.

Bethany Schryburt

The seats are tight and small, but the old style vaudeville theatre is well worth seeing. It was wonderful to hear and see former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, but I wish the historian talking with her wouldn't have talked so much.

Sam Geuvenen

It's much more like an auditorium or a stage than a typical movie theater, it's an absolutely wonderful experience unlike others in the area

Ann Arbor Concert Band was a great, concert and wonderful, venue has been redone nice new seats embroidered with the M and new enameled floor. Looks beautiful. I love this old theater, reminds me of the ones when I was a kid seeing Disney Films.

Sam Gurwin

Dr Gus

Great atmosphere. Was a shame the drink stand closed so early. I got a large drink at 930 and by 1030 I tried to get a refill but couldn't. Minor gripe but it was annoying.

Bruce Donley

Ry Cooder, Levon Helm are just two of the many outstanding artists that I have seen there.

Kylie Herrera

This is my first time to the Michigan Theater. We saw in Australian dinosaur tour. They actually came from Australia. They were so interactive with the crowd the way the theater was placed you could hear everything see everything. It was such a great experience the only complaint that I would have is that the concession stand is so small and it's placed right when you walk in so it's hard to get by if there's a long line at the concession stand regardless of the ropes they put so people wait in line for that move the concession stand or move the line and that would be the perfect place!! And prices were Fair

Mikki Moscara

Nostalgic, well maintained, and impressive shows, events, and screenings! It's always a joy to visit.

Rachel Sun

Old school theater with several different screening rooms. The main theater is only sometimes used, with the Annex and Screening room more commonly used for movies. The atmosphere is cozy, the antique aesthetic pleasing to the eye. Price wise, tickets are standard for the area, but this theater has a wider range of movies showing. The quality of the theater experience suffers however as the elevation of the seats is low, leaving you to either strain your neck upwards, or sit in the very back.

Bill Moran

Grand old theater showing first run and classic films every day, with concerts, lectures and exhibits thrown in to boot.

Brent Helwig

Incredible! What an amazing space...saw Amos Lee here which was just spectacular! He was great! The venue was great! The staff was great! Parking is close and a walk around downtown after the show was great too. The sound was much better than I thought it might be as well for the age of the building.

Ashley Wall

This place is beautiful! Everyone was helpful and kind.

James Jordan

Great venue sound was great very comfortable place to watch a show we will be back very good selection of concerts

Dayna Wiedbusch

Good venue. Had to buy a membership in order to buy alcoholic drinks. Stairs need to be lit better- I saw 2 people fall walking down in the balcony

Sara Baksa

Super neat, old school theatre with a throw back vibe! Organ performance before your movie, well when we were there for a movie. Even with the old school seats and screen it was a great time! Some of the best popcorn around or grab a margarita down the street!

Stephanie Willey

Classic and classy theatre experience

Carolyn Texley

Good acoustics, great movie and event selection.

Jordan Kleinsmith

Proud member of this fine organization. Great films and experiences along with a fantastic, nostalgic customer experience.

Mika Reedy

I go here every Thursday during the school year for the art school's lectures and I love this venue. It has a lot of seating but isn't too big. Some events are free, and tickets are usually around $9, I think. The concessions aren't too expensive. And it's located down town, where there are plenty of places to go to eat after the event you attend.

Kyle

I saw Kamasi Washington and his band during my first time here. My seat was quite far back and I could barely hear anything. I figured it was due to my seat, but after seeing Bela Fleck and the Flecktones up close, everything was still so washed out! The clarity of the instruments in this venue is terrible. I could barely hear what Bela Fleck was playing. I'm not sure if it's the acoustics or the sound engineer. I hope someone can make a note of this and work on improving it for future shows. It's a shame, because the venue is beautiful.

Daryl Davis

Very nice place to visit

Janine Amadi

Wonderful theater to see a movie! Love how the audience is polite & quiet and the concession stand sells popcorn with "real" butter!

Anne M.

Just saw a jazz show here and I thought this place was really nice. It looks really cool on the inside and I liked the history behind it. It was also really clean.

David Lamb

Amazing nonprofit theater! You would think this would be a super expensive place, but ticket prices for movies are quite reasonable. There are a number of great shows available with most seats being pretty solid choices. The screening room in the back is sufficient. Take some time to walk around and admire the architecture. This space is gorgeous.

Puneet Singh

Beautiful historical theater. The main theater has hosted world class performances, including music, talks, drama and comedy. They have a live piano performance sometimes, before the beginning of a show. Something that you don't see a lot anymore. It's not the best place to watch a movie because the seats do not recline, and are nowhere near the comfort of luxury couches in other cinemas. But they are a very dedicated organization and play a well curated set of movies and shows that you rarely get to see anywhere else.

Jody Morehouse

I love the Michigan Theater and I'm glad it's still being used because its so beautiful inside! A great night at the movies!

Marcus Nunn

Amazing experience, friendly service and nice seating areas. Clean theatre, they have popcorn, candy and serve alcohol. Beautiful theatre with engraved seats, perfect for a date, solo or a night out with friends. All around a great place to visit.

Viviana Andrade

Just love all of it. It may not have the fancy reclining seats but the atmosphere and movie selections make it one of the best places to watch a show or film.

Robert Komorous

Not a fan of the membership fee for drinks. Nice theater though

Tabitha Ludwig

Great place to watch a movie and don't forget to grab your special issue groundcover on your way in or out for ONLY 10 dollars

Scott Smith

Awesome place to see a concert. Get up close and personal to the artist.

Kanishk Bakshi

The ambience of the theater is good. I went there for Chinese New year festival. It was a nice experience for me

courtney Wagner

This is an amazingly beautiful and well kept historic venue. Walking in felt almost like stepping back in time. The staff is all amazing and polite, they genuinely seem to love this place and the community around it. They really set this place apart from other theaters, right down to the organ player as a before movie entertainment. This is a must visit place for tourist and michigander alike.

Ievgen Lauta

Nice place with friendly and helpful staff

Victoria Herman

Went to see Charlotte's Web for a preschool field trip. The ushers were very well organized and got us to our seats with our school quickly. The organist was outstanding! The kids had fun dancing to his music until the show started. The play was great. The actors were very engaging and the kids really enjoyed the show. The theater is beautiful and well maintained. Very clean and brings you back to "the old days" - a great theater experience!

izzy monberg

Always an amazing time when here for any kind of show!

Goddess of Trauma

I look forward to when the renovation is complete. It will be so beautiful! I enjoyed watching a movie there and joining as a member to signify my support.

Madison Davenport

I had a magical experience here!

Victor Yeung

This theater is such an iconic part of the University of Michigan campus. My friends and I came here to see La La Land and we loved it. Before the movie started, there was a musician playing the organ in the front of the theater, which made it feel like we were back in the old days. This is a nice old-fashioned theater that has gorgeous decor and surprisingly comfortable seats. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here would highly recommend catching a movie here!

Lily Lee

Excellent lineup of movies! This week highly recommend you see 'On the Basis of Sex"!!! Much respect to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg after watching her story and what she's accomplished so far for women in America.

Jesse Spencer

We went to see Peg + Cat Live as part of our school's exposure to the arts program. We loved it! The ushers were so amazing with our boys who've never been into a theater like this. All staff made it an enjoyable experience and we will most definitely be back!

Erin Kash

Great sound and comfy seats

Cyprian Blunt

I liked the old style of this theater compared to a modern one. We listened to the Ann Arbor symphony orchestra perform Star Wars music, and it was quite good. Only quibble: one of the smaller posters, probably for some movie, had a very graphic picture of a gay sex scene, which is visible as you're walking into the theater. While younger eyes should definitely be shielded be from this, no one needs to see this while they're just minding their own business.

Dan Chatfield

Very cozy venue! The service folks are always helpful and friendly. Alcohol is an interesting situation. You have to be a member of the organization to purchase alcohol, but you can sign up for a year on the spot. Totally worth the few dollars, and comes with a magazine subscription!

Jeremy Weber

Needtobreathe accoustic live tour. Loved the show and the venue... We needed a membership to buy a beer though... What's up with that?

Robyn Coogan

Loved seeing Randy Rainbow at the Michigan Theater. He was great and the venue was perfect. I wondered if I would be able to hear in the balcony. No worry. I heard it all. Of course he also had subtitles with the lyrics.

Arthur Talbot

A county treasure restored to it's original glory and then some! The Not Just for Kids series is an amazing program and great value. Wine & spirits available with your popcorn & candy.

Parker Thomas

Good historic large screen theatre.

Lisa Lemble

The crown jewel if 1920s movie theaters in southeast Michigan. Three screening rooms for n one building. The full experience is any movie shown in the main theater with a pre-show organ concert. Be sure to go up to the front before the movie starts and look at the whole room with your back to the screen. Gorgeous!

Alex Stanovoy

Not an easy parking. All other is good.

Michael St.John

Great place to see either a film, a concert or an event. Very few bad seats in the main room and they are clearly marked online so you know what you are getting when you book. Great little screening rooms in the back for smaller release films. A little piece of Ann Arbor history.

Ms. Anonymous

Wonderful historic movie house (with great ambiance in the main theater).

Jack Cawthon

One of my favorite theaters to catch a variety of movies. Seating can be cramped depending on what theater you're in.

Cameron Knox

I've been going to the theater for years. It is clean, 100% of the time. The staff are pleasant, 100% of the time. The management is knowledgeable and accommodating, 100% of the time. The events are thrilling, when they're screening thrillers.

Rodney Lover

What a wonderful time in a local theatre. From web purchase, to concession service that was fun and friendly to a cool organ prelude. So fun. Will be back. Thanks for your passion for a classic theatre experience.

John Fry

Beautiful space. Fun time. Good acoustics. The seats could be wider. All in all a good place.

jumptheskyjen .

Always a treat. Films are shown on time and are played well. This place is more about the experience then anything else. We have been here for numerous events through the years and it is a pleasure to visit. The staff is great!

Gabrielle Earl

Jenny lewis was awesome! The theater is beautiful.

Trooper Long

Recently modeled theater is larger with more screens, more seats and upstairs floor with escalator added. It's full of art deco touches (as before), but very modern and updated with amenities to help make your movie-going experience memorable.

Laura Johnson

Beautiful old time theater

Kimberly McAughey

Gave it 5 stars cuz we saw Melissa Etheridge there. We love her!!

Kim Day

Just saw It's A Wonderful Life...great place to see a show!

cat Williams

Super great venue. I love how small it is. You really get up close no matter where you're seated. We had tickets in the nose bleeds and I could still see every detail.

Kaleb R.

Went to The Greatest Showman sing-along and had a great time!

Herb Leverton

Randy Rainbow was great.This is a wonderful venue for live music.Excellent acoustics.

Daniel Leonard

important community & cultural institution in Ann Arbor that does it right.

Jason Weisberger

The detail and craftsmanship of this theatre is astonishing. I could watch paint dry here and be entertained.

Jordan Malokofsky

Very nice atmosphere! A little hard to see the stage over the heads of the people in front of you. The seats are not staggered, so you sit right behind the person in front and the floor is not sloped enough to see over their head if they are the same height as you. Popcorn was without the regular yellow coloring. Didn't try it myself, but I assumed it was popped without the regular theater seasoning. They did offer melted butter. If you like your popcorn "naked", it's for you. Also offered alcoholic drinks, wine and mixed drinks. Also didn't order these.

Matt Rogers

Great venue with character and charm!

Matthew Wiercinski

Wild Kratts Live was a WILD experience

Mary Ellen Miller

Love Banff film festival!

Bob Materka

1927 impeccably renovated venue for movies and live performances, Sheetz 1700

Russell Stambaugh

Beautifully preserved and restored theater from the golden age of cinema, complete with its own organ, Michigan Theater is as much a community hub as it is an independent movie house. It is home to the free Penny Stamps Lecture Series during the Fall and Winter Terms, and the famous Ann Arbor Film Festival in the Spring. In addition to quality adult movies nightly, it has also served as the site of the Community High commencement ceremony, and as venue for many smaller rock concerts and University Musical Society events. They also have the best movie popcorn in Ann Arbor, and a refreshment stand featuring bear and wine. The Michigan Theater is an Ann Arbor institution!

Joshua Craft

A lovely little theater in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor. Cozy and classical it's the perfect little venue to take in a holiday favorite.

Sandy Vitek

Great historical theater, with all of the old wonderful architecture you'd expect. Seating is very comfortable and well-placed for the stage. The theater does look like it could use a little bit of repair as far as paint and plastering and upkeep. Really helpful friendly staff. No parking on site, but there is a large public parking structure one block away.

The Michigan Theater is a wonderful place and a historic gem in the heart of Ann Arbor. The architecture is beautiful, the staff is friendly, and they do a great mix of indie and mainstream movies and events. I love that they play It’s a Wonderful Life every December for free, and it’s a lot of fun to catch the organ music. This is my favorite theater hands down! My only con is that the seats are small and kind of uncomfortable, but that adds to the historic charm.

Kate Guideau

This theater is gorgeous and they show lots of special things that you can't see anywhere else. In the past year, I especially enjoyed seeing all the Oscar nominated documentary shorts for this year (one ticket and you see all the nominees!) and a filmed performance of the one woman stage show Fleabag. Note that they have a good selection of beer, wine, and mixed drinks for a theater but you do have to have a Michigan Theater membership to buy alcohol.

Brandon Trout

The theater itself is really quite beautiful. There isn't much leg room between rows so keep that in mind if you're tall. I don't know whether it had something to do with the venue itself, but the crowd at the show I saw here was by far the most disrespectful crowd I've seen for any concert. People were entering and leaving the auditorium in droves throughout the show, forcing ushers to direct them to their seats with flashlights the entire time, creating quite a distraction from the show. Definitely a mixed bag for my visit, but it's hard to really attribute that to the venue itself.

Jazz Hamilton

Classic theatre, love the live music at the beginning

Zach Lambert

Seats are worse than a spirit airlines plane. Zero leg room, zero comfort. Seats aren’t staggered so you can’t see the stage. I’ve never seen a bad performance here, but you leave with back pain.

Joe Dank

Great theater I go here mainly for concerts!! The last few shows I attended were great. The staff is always very kind. I love that people don't smoke in the theater and that it is easy to go outside and smoke. Always a good experience. PEACE

Miss Breedlove

Vintage theatre feel, with modern theatre media. Well kept venue with friendly and courteous staff.

Mariko Hayashi

Very classy/historical feel to it. Lots of different-sized theaters with different feels you them. Gotta say, the pipe organ is pretty cool to catch, if it's playing :)

David Miller

Saw Sarah Vowell, very entertaining. Have to read some of her books.

Del Belcher

Such an incredible venue! I love that so much work is going back into restoring this historical landmark. While you won't catch new movie openings, this place is a fountain of family fun and entertainment all year round. I especially love how they show Oscar nominated features during awards season. Also, if you ever have a chance to catch a concert her, do it!

JEFF Cook

The theater itself is very nice and the few staff members that I talked to were very nice but on the day that I was there they were in way over there head they had a mess set up trying to sell beer and mixed drinks but u could only buy them if u are a member which they make u fill out paperwork for which slowed a all ready slow process down even longer. Then u had people cutting in line making it even longer my girlfriend went to get two drinks when we first got there missed the first act completely and a good portion of Ron white.

Billie Jo Stevens

It was a perfect sized venue for a concert. The building is also beautiful.

John Duncan

Beautiful theater. Parking is close and lots of options for eating or shopping around it.

LaSonia Forte

My favorite theater in the area. They have the best popcorn and movies that are not shown at the regular theaters.

Mitchell Kozera

Classic venue at the university. Great concert.

Kabuzi Mkandawire

Beautiful decor, really has a vintage feel. The acoustics are also quite impressive. Staff have been pleasant on each of my visits. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this establishment

Heather B

Very cool place in a cool location.

Anshul Singhal

Classic movie screenings mostly!

Dan Chatfield

Very cozy venue! The service folks are always helpful and friendly. Alcohol is an interesting situation. You have to be a member of the organization to purchase alcohol, but you can sign up for a year on the spot. Totally worth the few dollars, and comes with a magazine subscription!

Ea Laine Delena

Beautiful historic location with small cozy theatres. I enjoyed my experience here despite the mildly uncomfortable seats.

Jeremy Weber

Needtobreathe accoustic live tour. Loved the show and the venue... We needed a membership to buy a beer though... What's up with that?

Robyn Coogan

Loved seeing Randy Rainbow at the Michigan Theater. He was great and the venue was perfect. I wondered if I would be able to hear in the balcony. No worry. I heard it all. Of course he also had subtitles with the lyrics.

Alyssa McCoy

The Michigan Theater is absolutely beautiful! There really isn't a bad seat in the house. We went to see a shadow cast of Rocky Horror Picture Show. We sat up in the mezzanine and could see all of the actors on the stage. 10/10 would recommend.

Arthur Talbot

A county treasure restored to it's original glory and then some! The Not Just for Kids series is an amazing program and great value. Wine & spirits available with your popcorn & candy.

Parker Thomas

Good historic large screen theatre.

Lisa Lemble

The crown jewel if 1920s movie theaters in southeast Michigan. Three screening rooms for n one building. The full experience is any movie shown in the main theater with a pre-show organ concert. Be sure to go up to the front before the movie starts and look at the whole room with your back to the screen. Gorgeous!

Alex Stanovoy

Not an easy parking. All other is good.

Michael St.John

Great place to see either a film, a concert or an event. Very few bad seats in the main room and they are clearly marked online so you know what you are getting when you book. Great little screening rooms in the back for smaller release films. A little piece of Ann Arbor history.

Ms. Anonymous

Wonderful historic movie house (with great ambiance in the main theater).

Jack Cawthon

One of my favorite theaters to catch a variety of movies. Seating can be cramped depending on what theater you're in.

Cameron Knox

I've been going to the theater for years. It is clean, 100% of the time. The staff are pleasant, 100% of the time. The management is knowledgeable and accommodating, 100% of the time. The events are thrilling, when they're screening thrillers.

Rodney Lover

What a wonderful time in a local theatre. From web purchase, to concession service that was fun and friendly to a cool organ prelude. So fun. Will be back. Thanks for your passion for a classic theatre experience.

John Fry

Beautiful space. Fun time. Good acoustics. The seats could be wider. All in all a good place.

jumptheskyjen

Always a treat. Films are shown on time and are played well. This place is more about the experience then anything else. We have been here for numerous events through the years and it is a pleasure to visit. The staff is great!

Gabrielle Earl

Jenny lewis was awesome! The theater is beautiful.

Trooper Long

Recently modeled theater is larger with more screens, more seats and upstairs floor with escalator added. It's full of art deco touches (as before), but very modern and updated with amenities to help make your movie-going experience memorable.

Laura Johnson

Beautiful old time theater

Kimberly McAughey

Gave it 5 stars cuz we saw Melissa Etheridge there. We love her!!

Kim Day

Just saw It's A Wonderful Life...great place to see a show!

cat Williams

Super great venue. I love how small it is. You really get up close no matter where you're seated. We had tickets in the nose bleeds and I could still see every detail.

Kaleb R.

Went to The Greatest Showman sing-along and had a great time!

Herb Leverton

Randy Rainbow was great.This is a wonderful venue for live music.Excellent acoustics.

Daniel Leonard

important community & cultural institution in Ann Arbor that does it right.

Jason Weisberger

The detail and craftsmanship of this theatre is astonishing. I could watch paint dry here and be entertained.

Jordan Malokofsky

Very nice atmosphere! A little hard to see the stage over the heads of the people in front of you. The seats are not staggered, so you sit right behind the person in front and the floor is not sloped enough to see over their head if they are the same height as you. Popcorn was without the regular yellow coloring. Didn't try it myself, but I assumed it was popped without the regular theater seasoning. They did offer melted butter. If you like your popcorn "naked", it's for you. Also offered alcoholic drinks, wine and mixed drinks. Also didn't order these.

Matt Rogers

Great venue with character and charm!

Matthew Wiercinski

Wild Kratts Live was a WILD experience

Mary Ellen Miller

Love Banff film festival!

Bob Materka

1927 impeccably renovated venue for movies and live performances, Sheetz 1700

Russell Stambaugh

Beautifully preserved and restored theater from the golden age of cinema, complete with its own organ, Michigan Theater is as much a community hub as it is an independent movie house. It is home to the free Penny Stamps Lecture Series during the Fall and Winter Terms, and the famous Ann Arbor Film Festival in the Spring. In addition to quality adult movies nightly, it has also served as the site of the Community High commencement ceremony, and as venue for many smaller rock concerts and University Musical Society events. They also have the best movie popcorn in Ann Arbor, and a refreshment stand featuring bear and wine. The Michigan Theater is an Ann Arbor institution!

Melissa Squires

Ann Arbor staple, movies, events, and speakers. I've seen Patti Smith talk, Cyndi Lauper sing and Sally Mann speak about her photography to name a few. Beautiful space and they are going to be extending and growing their building this year.

Joshua Craft

A lovely little theater in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor. Cozy and classical it's the perfect little venue to take in a holiday favorite.

Sandy Vitek

Great historical theater, with all of the old wonderful architecture you'd expect. Seating is very comfortable and well-placed for the stage. The theater does look like it could use a little bit of repair as far as paint and plastering and upkeep. Really helpful friendly staff. No parking on site, but there is a large public parking structure one block away.

John Anton

The Michigan Theater (and the State Theater) should be your first choice to watch a movie in Ann Arbor. The Michigan has a classic vibe and always has an interesting set of independent films and documentaries in addition to some blockbusters. They won't gouge you on snacks and drinks and it's a nonprofit! Plus the Michigan is right downtown in the middle of lots of restaurants and bars. Hands down the best movie theater in town.

Billie Jo Stevens

It was a perfect sized venue for a concert. The building is also beautiful.

Linda Santiago

Such a charming and beautiful historic building. It’s very impressive how it’s been so well maintained and the seating is still very comfortable. We watched some movies during our weekend visit and it felt like going back in time for us. Not having an old fashioned venue like this around our home made it much more special. Glad my daughter will be going to school nearby so we can stop by again sometimes. Keep up the good work!

Eddi Haskell

Classic movie with huge restored auditorium and second screening room seating 500 with real projection movie camera, comfortable seats, reasonable prices showing first run movies and special art house productions. A treasure for any movie buff. Restored art deco glamour.

Xanthia Denver

Awesome theater! Going there for a movie is one of my greatest joy after school.

Jenna

I love the Michigan Theater! It's really "grand" inside and always is showing cool stuff, whether that's Ann Arbor Symphony playing the music of Harry Potter or cool talks from the filmmakers or Planet Earth and Blue Planet. Definitely an Ann Arbor staple.

Andy Lipp

Had trouble with Ticketmaster tickets but the staff at the Michigan Theater Handled it easily and painlessly for us. Beautiful venue good sound. Limited bathrooms could use expansion there.

Daniel Quevedo

It is beautiful, the people are very nice. They tend to do a lot of programming with more unique groups like the UM Japanese Society or They Might Be Giants. They also have an organist play 30 minutes before every movie.

carrie paps

Love seeing a live show here. Always a good time, great view no matter where you sit, great sound. Just a FYI, to drink booze you have to join the "club" for $5. If you frequent the theater, it's a great deal. Otherwise not worth it for a 1 night show.

Josh Kisskalt

Had a blast at Wild Kratts. Clean theatre and friendly staff.

Shane Werlinger

Michigan Theater is a beautiful building. I went there for the first time to see John Butler Trio and it's a perfect place for a concert. There's not a bad seat in the place. It's very intimate. The autistics are phenomenal. It was made to play music there.

kiljim58

Whatever the event, you feel like you're part of history--enjoy it.

Richard Horsman

Great old theater, with a mix of new mainstream and art films, and great old films.

Jennifer DeFillippo

We went to see David Sedaris here on 18 April, 2018. My daughter and I love his writing. The Michigan Theater was a great place for his reading, as it is easy to locate (in Ann Arbor, MI) and plenty of structure parking available, many eateries located nearby (we dined in a sandwich shop right next door!)...The theater is clean, well-lit, very comfortable; the acoustics are excellent, the staff there are all very friendly and helpful. I would definitely go again!

Anthony

Classic film venue in downtown A2 with a retro flair. Wooden seating like in the old days, so be prepared. Smaller theater rooms make it cozy. I liked it!

Kevin Laverty

Beautiful theater with excellent sound!

Kevin O'Brien

This is a great place for a concert, which we frequently do there. We've also been a few films, but it is mostly concerts.

Abagail Jeavons

A really cute old theater! They show lots of cool movies

Brian Lang

It's a good theater in downtown Ann Arbor. There's a parking structure across the street. I've seen comedians and play/shows here and they've all been good and the venue worked well for each. If you want alcohol you have to but a year membership for about $10 first - it sucks to pay the extra but that's how they can get a liquor license so i guess you deal with it if you want to drink.

gina bestneylon@yahoo.com

always a wonderful place to see a ballet

Sadaf Ali

Cool place.

Dorothy Znosko

Bela Fleck. Roy Futureman Wooten. Victor Wooten.

Luise Henze

Beautiful atmosphere in historic theater. You won't find your typical blockbusters here (unless they feature an older one as part of a series), but you will find incredible gems, that big commercial theaters usually miss, be it small, independent productions, documentaries or foreign movies. I love it!

Shane LaClair

Great place to go for entertainment.

Jessica Benjamin

Beautiful venue!!! Can't wait to go go back!

Jason Will

Beautiful historical theater in downtown Ann Arbor. See a show here if you get the chance.

Merri Gnaster

We got in smoothly, the ushers knew where to send us.If you are over 5'2 you will need extra knee room....in the balcony area. The Keb'Mo' concert was great! We could see the stage very good,from our balcony seats.The sound quality is outstanding.

Joe Snell

We saw the Fab Faux here. Beautiful theater!

Hassan Barzani

Michigan Theatre is located in the heart of Downtown Ann Arbor. Everyone here are amazing individuals for sure. So many historic events have occurred in this particular theater for sure. Plus it’s opened all year round as well. Can’t wait to make another appearence as a visitor again soon as well. Keep up the great work!

Constance Kelly

Fabulous experience on Friday night. The sing along movies are the best. History of the venue is worth a visit to Ann Arbor.

Gerry Ryley

Great venue for music. Love to see Joe Jackson there.

Chris Woelkers

An amazing theatre showing a wide variety of movies, all of which are not the run of the mill blockbusters. Also hosts some live events in the magnificent main theater. Two historic movie house organs are in house, both sound wonderful and are worth a listen if you happen to be heading in to watch an evening show.

Sandy Aldrich

Listening to one of the community high school jazz ensembles at the Premier of Commie High.

Bill Oreilly

Always great classic theater

WrathOfN8 .

Great acoustics for a concert. If any of your favorite bands are playing here, go. You will be impressed.

myra sohail

I had a lovely time..one of the best experiences

Bob Pfeiffer

I saw a rock concert here. I bought modest priced seats and still thought that I had a great view in this moderate size venue. The acoustics seemed good for my location on the main floor. I love the old style original interior. I am glad that it is still open. I am 6' and found the seats very comfortable with plenty of leg room for me. That is not always the case in older theaters. I would have given it 5 stars except there are some modest issues where the place is showing some wear and tear. No biggies.

Richard Brown

Wonderful restoration of a historic theater. Check out the gorgeous new seats.

Shelly Wisnowski

Beautiful theater. Has the decor that reminds you of the Fox or other historical sites, but on a smaller scale. (I am a short person and my knees were hitting the seats in front of me, so definitely not a lot of leg room.) Sound quality was good, we saw a comedy act.

Adam

There is a lot of history here and I love the interior. Watching a movie with my family was fun. I still reminisce about the Vanilla Ice concert here in the 1990s (don't judge; I was very young).

Stacey Karl

A staple in Ann Arbor. It is a stunning theatre and excellent resource to the community.
