Senate Theater Marquee
The Senate is home to the Mighty Wurlitzer from the Fisher Theater! This magnificent theater pipe organ has been in the Senate longer than it was in the Fisher, and has provided monthly organ concerts for more than 50 years now! It is one of the largest Wurlitzers in the world, and is a one of a kind design.
Unfortunately our sign (and the steel structure that holds it up) has rusted over the years and we had to take down the letterboard part, making it difficult to advertise our movies and events. We need to raise about $150,000 to put up a new letterboard so people know we are open for business.
Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated! We love our theater and it's Wurlitzer, both gems of Detroit! Thank you so much for considering a donation to our non-profit "organ"ization!
Fantastic progress thanks to your generous donations!!
I know this theater and the good people that try to keep it afloat. For many years I was active there and made various innovations. When you approach a theater the main sign and Marquee are vary important. Even though over the years the interior has changed and is truly remarkable the exterior welcoming Marquee is so important. Let's help the DTOS welcome its visitors in style. Marquee's are not cheap!
Do donations include membership in the society? IF so how much is that?
For anyone wanting a bit more history of the organ and how it ended up at the Senate, here is a video I produced a few years back. https://vimeo.com/40914302
To all-THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU!!
