Michigan Theater

We dropped Alana off to see Cassie tonight and then went to see "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" at the Michigan Theater. It is the only place I have ever been where there is an organist playing live before the show.

The Michigan Theater opened in January, 1929, during the age of the silent films, when live music was played to accompany the show.

Here is a photo inside the theater of the ceiling in the main auditorium. The gold leaf still sparkles. I had to laugh as the people next to us were staring at me so obviously, when I looked at them, the guy had to say "hi." It was pretty funny.
