More Night at the Theater — More Theaters
Weekend features cost just $3 at the Penn in Plymouth. Since opening in 1941, the downtown theater has undergone renovations, including a three-year period of closure, before reopening in 2006 (734/453-0870; penntheatre.com).
It costs a quarter to see a flick on Wednesday and Saturday mornings (before noon) in Traverse City. The price reflects the original cost of a move in 1916, when the theater, originally known as the Lyric opened its doors. Wanting even more bargains? Movie patrons get free small popcorn on Tuesdays (231/947-4800; statetheatretc.org).
Looks can be deceiving at Cheboygan’s Opera House. A modern brick exterior leads to not only the magnificently restored 582-seat theater, but also houses city services such as City Hall, Fire and Police departments. For upcoming events, check the online calendar (231/627-5841; theoperahouse.org).
