In town on vacation, my wife and I saw Victoria & Abdul here at this theater one afternoon. Quaint theater ran by local volunteers. Reasonable prices. It was packed with mostly retired-aged customers (which, hopefully, I may be myself some day). We thoroughly it. Bravo!

Cool theater renovated from the old zoo. Run by volunteers that are extremely friendly and helpful! Low prices for tickets and concessions. $6 for a large pop and popcorn

This theatre is smaller than the State but can show mainstream movies. Great sound and picture - you can access it by walking through the tunnel under Bayshore Drive. I've seen several movies there and highly recommend it.

A great addition to Traverse City and located by the water. Be sure and notice the painted scenery on the walls that reflect nature in this beautiful city. If you enjoy great films in a warm and cozy environment this is the place. Oh yeah,...More
