Due to Whitmer’s newest COVID plans, the Michigan and State Theaters have decided to close a little early. However, this doesn’t mean that all the movie fun is over!

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Governor Whitmer have announced a new public health order that, beginning Wednesday, November 18, many  businesses are set to close, including movie theaters. To ensure the health of our community, the Michigan and State theaters have canceled their scheduled movies starting today, November 17.

Although the in-person movie screenings are closed, that doesn’t mean that the Michigan and State theater aren’t trying to put something together for local cinephiles. Movie lovers can check out the virtual offers in the Virtual Movie Palace and follow events such as the popular Virtual Movie Trivia.

Michigan and State Theater’s Virtual Movie Palace is the perfect place to watch a curated selection of great arthouse films that can be safely watched from home. Support our local theaters by renting movies online to enjoy with your family.

For those interested, the next Virtual Movie Trivia round is this Thursday at 7pm. Participants can register online here to join the movie trivia fun! Public tickets are $5, but members can play for free! Only a single ticket is needed for your entire team.
