Cedar Street Cinema | Manistique
Whether you live around Manistique or you’re just visiting, a matinee at the Cedar Street Cinema is a simple $5. A bonus is that their concessions aren’t particularly expensive. The theater itself is rather clean and has friendly employees.
Clinton Theater | Clinton
$3 on Tuesdays/$4 other days
Small but cozy, the Clinton Theater is a one-screen movie theater that’s family-owned and operated. As a result, you can tell the employees and owners care very much about appeasing their audiences. It’s also particularly known for being a perfect place to take your family, but anyone is welcome here.
Elk Rapids Cinema | Elk Rapids
$6 Mondays/$6 Matinees
As a “beautifully restored Art Deco theater,” the Elk Rapids Cinema is a must-visit theater for movie buffs, history enthusiasts, and interior designers alike.
According to their website, their original “cry room” remains intact, and their actual theater contains the “world’s largest black light ceiling mural.” It’s definitely a place worth visiting if you find yourself in Northern Michigan.
The Farmington Civic | Farmington
The building officially opened in 1940. The Farmington Civic Theater has been a staple in the Metro Detroit community for many decades since. You walk inside and you’d never know that you’re inside a second-run movie theater.
If you’re a frequent movie-goer, monthly memberships (starting under $20) are the way to go!
Penn Theatre | Plymouth
With a modest 402 seats in their one-screen theater, the Penn Theatre in downtown Plymouth perfectly embodies what is special about the value of community.
In 2005, a group of local businessmen purchased the theatre and now lease it out to a group of caring citizens. If you can, go support this thriving piece of Michigan history.
The Strand | Paw Paw
ranges from $3 to $6
Having been a part of Paw Paw since 1930, The Strand has earned its reputation on Michigan’s west side. Their reasonable prices on concessions and comfortable hometown atmosphere will certainly make your experience here an enjoyable one.
