If you read the Tahqua Land’s page at gofundme.com, you’d have discovered the theater in Sault Sainte Marie is about to close. Also, as of this posting, the Tahqua Land is halfway to their goal, thanks to two $5000 donations from an anonymous donor.

Although I’ve never been to that theater, and I don’t foresee visiting Newberry, Michigan anytime in the near future, I do hope to make a $25 donation within the next month. I strongly believe Fred Dunkeld will reach his goal of $60,000 to keep the Tahqua Land open, and every little bit helps!

The theater in Sault Ste Marie, Michigan is closed. The theater in Sault Ste Marie ON (Canada) is still open.

What happened to the Tahqua Land’s Go Fund Me page?

Is the theater closing? I hope not!

Actually, Newberry is a great place to visit. Located in the heart of the UP of MI, it is close to the falls but much quieter than the Sault Ste Marie area or the tourists in St. Ignace / Mackinac Island. Unfortunately the theater was closed both times I was there.

As for going to SSM Canada, it might be easier to drive to Detroit. Both times I crossed there the border check was more of a hassle and much more time consuming that my experiences crossing into East Berlin at Checkpoint Charlie. Maybe they treat locals better.

Sorry to hear that, Stan. I used that crossing last year and came back through Sarnia as part of our trip. Never had one bit of trouble either time. Many Michiganders commute to jobs in Canada on a daily basis. Maybe you caught a person having a bad day.

Theatre and its contents offered for sale for $250,000 in July 2021. Any word on the outcome?

Phone rings but no one answers. Appears to be closed. Facebook page states that the theatre is closed due to the Covid pandemic.

The Tahqua Land Theatre opened in 1930 under the name of the State Theatre.
