Get Your Own Seat at the New State Theatre

. June 1, 2017.

Ann Arbor’s “new” State Theatre offers a “unique and affordable” opportunity for local film and theatre advocates to sponsor an individual seat in their newly renovated theatre.

About 150 of the approximately 350 seats in the four viewing areas housed in the State Theatre building have already been spoken for. The campaign is part of the Theatre’s “State & Michigan Project.” By sponsoring a seat, community members will have their choice of a message inscribed on the seat where “every time someone sits in that seat this year, next year, and for generations to come, they will see the generous gift that was made when it was needed most.”

Those interested have the option of making their donation to the theatre in a single payment of $1,500, three payments of $500, or five payments of $300.
