Memberships

Michigan Theater members are the foundation of our organization. Members provide funds that are absolutely vital to the day-to-day operation of this community treasure. To demonstrate our appreciation, members are able to attend many events at reduced prices, among other benefits. We are proud to welcome more than 3800 member families each year.

How does your membership make a difference?

  • Helps protect and preserve this grand historic building, with its glistening chandeliers and original Barton organ.
  • Supports award-winning programming that enlightens and entertains.
  • Promotes excellence and innovation, as recognized by prestigious national organizations such as Sundance Institute, the Kresge Foundation, and the League of Historic American Theatres.
  • Instantly become part of our family of supporters who have preserved the Michigan Theater since 1928.

Memberships make great gifts!

If you’re wondering what to give to the movie lover on your list, look no further. A Gift Membership comes with year round discounts to movies concessions and many of our live events. In addition, members have bar privileges, free parking validation at nearby structures and receive invitations to members-only parties. Memberships are good for  benefits at both the Michigan and State Theaters.
