If you would like a unique experience for your next concert, comedy tour, or latest blockbuster, look no further than the Michigan Theatre of Jackson in Jackson, Michigan! This 1930s theater has been captivating people with its extravagance since the day it opened its doors. The lavish beauty of the theatre is breathtaking and as fascinating as the show you’re seeing.
When you come to the Michigan Theatre you are not just seeing a show, its an entire experience. Before entering, you're greeted by the Hollywood glamour of a glittering marquee, then step inside to be transported to another world. The Spanish Renaissance style is exotic and simply unlike anything you would see in a modern movie theatre. From the craftsmanship on the interior plasterwork, to the ornate polychrome terra cotta façade, not a single detail was forgotten when it was designed. Even the furniture was elaborately carved out of walnut.
The upper balcony provides a bird’s eye view of the architecture, allowing you to get a better look at the columns flanking the outer walls and the handcrafted stained-glass light fixtures. Its from here that you can really appreciate the continual efforts that go into maintaining this iconic landmark.
