Have you ever wanted to see your name in lights on the Michigan Theater marquee? Or surprise a loved one with a special message on the Michigan Theater movie screen before seeing a film? Individual sponsorship gives the general public access to display a message on either the Michigan Theater marquee for one night or on the movie screen for one night.
Sponsored Film Series
Sponsors frequently support special film series at the Michigan. We have worked with individuals and organizations to present a broad range of films based on a particular theme, including: Director or star retrospectives, celebration of national cinema, summer classics, holiday classics, genre series and theme series of all kinds.
Sponsorship helps keep the Michigan Theater an active, vibrant part of the arts community in Ann Arbor, and provides a variety of benefits that can suit corporations, small businesses, and individuals alike.
