Locals bid for Michigan Theater
By LAURENCE KRETCHMER
While you might not go out of your
way to find a bargain on a collectible
pressurecanner or a Roku ceramic pot,
supporters of the city's landmark;
Michigan Theater bid on these items
and about 100 others at the theater's
Fourth Annual Auction Friday Night.
More than 200 Michigan Theater en-
thusiasts spent a total of $5500 on the
items, which included everything from
original artwork to a football
autographed by the Michigan
Wolverines (which went for $60).
THE EVENING provided bargain
hunters an opportunity to make a steal
or two - as in the case of one Ann Ar-
borite who walked away with two hours
of legal advice, donated by local attor-
ney Robert Stevenson, for just $85. But
the event primarily served as a social
gathering of theater supporters who
had the chance to make donations in an

said one participant who paid $32 for a

Ypsilanti residents John and Jane
VanBolt won the use of a 1984 Lincoln
Continental for 14 days. The Van Bolts
paid $430 for the car's use more than
$1000 below the regular rate. They and
their three children will take the car on
a trio to Alabama.
THE ENTERTAINING local auc-
tioning team of Braun and Helmer
coaxed and teased the audience into
making higher bids.
The evening also provided a chance
for the Michigan Community Theater
Foundation to showcase some of the
improvements that have been made in
the building since the theater received being made," MacMillan said. "No

- a lucky bidder
SHELLEY MACMILLAN, the
theater's director of operations, says
the theater's beginning to "move out of
the woods" financially. For the first
time in years, the theater is sponsoring
some of its own events. Previously, the
55-year-old building was exclusively a
rental facility with a local film society,
the Ann Arbor Chamber Orchestra, and
various stage companies providing
most of the theater's revenue.
"Although the organization is not
exactly thriving, great progress is
drive and soliciting private donations.
But MacMillan said substantial funds
are still needed for capital im-
Although auction revenues fell $500
behind last year, MacMillan said she is
optimistic about future events. "By
soliciting donators earlier, we will have
a better idea of what we have so we can
attract bidders for specific higher
priced items," she said. "The auction
has not lost its appeal."
