Most popular for hosting the Ann Arbor Film Festival and the Cinetopia International Film Festival, the Michigan Theatre has become one of the premium venues in the city. The theatre was designed by architect Maurice Finkel in the early 20th century, can seat 1700 people and includes the Barton Pipe Organ (that is stored to its original form and has no digital additions), an Orchestra pit, a stage and stunning details of design and architecture that draws from the Century Revival and Lombard Romanesque styles. The theatre lobby is by far the best part of the theatre with beautiful chandeliers, gorgeous golden details that work their way up to the ceiling and full length mirrors at one end that complete the grand design.
A piece of history in itself, take a walk around the theatre to see the high arches with coloured terra cotta elements, the lobby area with barrel valued ceiling, the beautiful wood panelling seen all around the theatre and wrought iron elements illuminated with warm lightings. Even though the place maintains its historic charm, the state of the art sound system, the screening room with modern equipment’s and the 60-seat modern Annexe Cinema, form the perfect mix of the past and the present! If you like places with beautiful ambiences, try to attend a live concert, play or event at the Michigan Theatre when in Ann Arbour.
