Vogue Theatre Making Final Preps For Big Weekend

Final preparations are underway as everyone scrambles to finish the Vogue Theatre in Manistee in time for their grand opening.

The Vogue Theatre has been a work in progress for years, but all that work is about to pay off.

Friday is the Vogue's “Sneak Peek” and Saturday is the grand opening to the public.

The Vogue plans to open the main theatre, bathrooms, lobby, and concessions for both events. To get it open in time everyone is pulling together.

According to the Assistant Manager of Operations Tony Dzibuda, they are confident they will get it all done.

This week the Vogue received another hefty donation. An anonymous donor gave $100,000, but it's a match gift, so everyone's dollar counts twice. The Vogue hopes to raise the rest of the $550,000 needed of their $2.4 million goal during this busy weekend.

9&10's Breelynn Martin and Photojournalist Tony Zyber stopped by the theatre.

The exclusive “Sneak Peek” is Friday night, but requires a special ticket. The movie “Nebraska” will be shown during that event.

The Grand Opening to the public is Saturday morning at 10 a.m. Christmas movies will be shown before the Sleigh Bell Parade and following the parade they will show “Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” For more information on show times CLICK HERE.
