For it’s 75th anniversary, the State Theatre is getting a facelift, along with plans to enhance the audio and visual experience. The project is being managed by the Michigan Theatre Foundation and will include doubling the number of screening rooms from two to four, the installation of an elevator, new seating, and a new projection and sound system. The renovations will also restore the original Art Deco design of C. Howard Crane. A public fundraising campaign to help support the renovations will be launched this summer.
