The Michigan Theater opened on September 17, 1930 with a seating capacity of 1,848. Built during the Depression, by Schlossman Theatre Inc., and designed by famed theater architect C. Howard Crane, descriptions of the theater from this time talk of an extraordinary beauty and grace.
The theater was purchased in October 1976 by the Community Foundation for Muskegon County, with a generous grant of $475,000 provided by A. Harold Frauenthal.
From 1995 to 1998, a $7.5 million restoration project returned this gem to its original beauty.
Recently, the theater has served as the location of the Cherry County Playhouse, as well as the Miss Michigan Scholarship Program.
