Find new films online through the Michigan Theater’s Virtual Movie Palace

Movie lovers have had to go without trips to the theater, popcorn with fake butter and really expensive Milk Duds for over a month now, but that doesn’t mean they have to go without new movies. The Michigan Theater is offering audiences stuck at home a chance to enjoy a “Virtual Movie Palace” and experience new films through its website.

Fans who want to support the Michigan Theater can rent and/or purchase the movies on offer through links provided on the page, and in turn, a portion of the price will go back to support the Michigan Theater Foundation.

Among the films on offer this week:
