About The Michigan Theatre of Jackson
A glittering, two-story marquee and Spanish-style terra-cotta façade extols the Michigan Theatre of Jackson's 82-year history to anyone who passes. Established in 1930, the theater originally presented movies and vaudeville shows to the public, who viewed the spectacles from the lower level or balcony seated between gilded columns under an ornate plaster ceiling. Though the entertainment industry continued to evolve, the Michigan Theatre retained much of its lavish, vintage charm—including rich, damask draperies, stained-glass light fixtures, and WWII-era Pac-Man machines—until it closed down in 1978. The historical theater was acquired in 1993 by a nonprofit organization, which reopened the theater's doors and restored the building to its current state.
Today, the entertainment hub hosts classic and art-house films as well as live theater and concerts. In the first-floor lobby, an old-fashioned candy counter sells sweets and popcorn to make sure audiences have something to throw at the screen during midnight screenings of Chinatown.
