(Ann Arbor, Michigan – November 27, 2017) In celebration of its 75th birthday, The Michigan Theater Foundation is pleased to announce the Grand Re-opening of the iconic-State Theatre on Friday, December 8, 2017.

In the final stages of revitalization and in anticipation for the Grand Re-opening, The State Theatre has been a visual and activity anchor for downtown Ann Arbor for 75 years. It brings history, diversity and excitement to the community while stimulating the economy of the Liberty and State Street area.
Restoring the theatre to its former glory and enhancing it with modern amenities ensures that generations to come will benefit from its cultural and economic impact, while helping to position the Michigan Theater Foundation as an international leader of art-house cinema programming.
The iconic State Theatre marquee will help kick off the State Street District Moonlight Madness event with the official relighting on Friday, December 1 at 6:00 p.m. December 1 will also mark The State Theatre’s on-sale date for tickets to the public.
