THS vice-president Mike Hauser sends this link and reminds  us that we saw this theatre on the 1995 THS conclave which Mike organized around the Detroit area. Former THS member Chuck Ahronheim has long been involved with his home-town movie palace in Jackson and sits on its board of directors.

 JACKSON, MI – Restoration of the cupola atop the Michigan Theatre has drawn special praise from the Michigan Historic Preservation Network.
