You and friends and family can make use of our state-of-the-art facilities  at the newly-renovated Art Deco State Theatre. Rentals can take the form of movie screenings, group video gaming, rehearsals, video or audio recording sessions, and more. Maximum capacity of our largest theater is 26.

Base rental fee is $125 per hour (3 hour minimum)

Please fill in the rental request form or email Patty Havey for more information and pricing.

We are safely opening up the State Theatre for rentals based on the latest announcement from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS). Based on this guidance, masks must be worn at all times (even in your seat), and no food or drink is permitted. Please review our full COVID Safety Plan here.
