Old Theater, New Seats!

Comfort and authenticity are our key goals in upgrading the new Michigan Theater seats, which will be wider and will closely resemble the original 1928 seats.

Anyone Can Sponsor a Seat!

We are offering everyone in the community an opportunity to participate in the Michigan’s beautification in a very meaningful – and affordable – way! Please join in and leave a lasting legacy to the vital role you played in making the renovation possible.

Choose Your Seat & Inscription

Everyone who sponsors a seat, whether it is new or a renewal, will have an opportunity to select the seat location of the new plaque, as well as the inscription on that plaque.

Already Have a Seat?

If you already have a sponsored seat at the Michigan, you can renew your sponsorship at a reduced gift level — $1000 instead of $1500. We remain grateful for your previous donation, given at a time of great need. You — and your original gift — will be recognized on a large plaque that will hang on the wall of the Michigan Theater.

If you already have sponsored a seat within the last five years (2013-2017), your plaque will be retained and placed on one of the new seats. You are welcome to make an additional gift to support the campaign!

Play a Vital Role in the Michigan Theater Renovation!

Your message will be inscribed on a prominent brass plaque on the armrest of your seat(s). Your plaque can feature:

• A romantic tribute to you and your spouse or significant other
• A memorial for your deceased parent, friend or loved one
• Recognition of your child for a special achievement
• A simple, straightforward plaque with your name
