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.
