This is a great way to make new friends while enjoying films in Ann Arbor. While we most often see films at the Michigan Theater downtown, we may also see movies at commercial theaters. Before or after the film we may head somewhere for a drink and food. Please, let me know if you'd like to host a movie. Why see a movie alone when you can go with someone!
This film only plays today!
This is a Michigan premiere, featuring the Michigan Theater! Going Attractions celebrates the splendor and grandeur of the great cinemas of the United States, built when movies were the acme of entertainment and the stories were larger than life, as were the venues designed to show them. Thousands of seats, giant screens, exotic and ornate interiors with balconies and lounges, in-house organs and orchestras, amazing marquees, and air conditioning back when houses had none. The film also tracks the eventual decline of the palaces, through today’s current preservation efforts. A tribute to America’s great art form and the great monuments created for audiences to enjoy them in.
85 min. Documentary. NR
The movie starts at 7:30 in the Michigan Theater Auditorium. I'll already be in the theater for a member event prior to the movie. I'll come out to the lobby at the bottom of the stairs at 7:20.
