Manistee’s newly restored Vogue Theater in Manistee opens to the public Saturday – with free screenings through the weekend.
“It’s been a long three years for lots of volunteers and it felt like maybe this day wasn’t going to happen. So I think that there’s some that are sort-of in shock and don’t believe it’s really coming together. But for the most part, people are really excited,” says Beth Wallace, the fund development coordinator for the Vogue Theater.
Among this weekend’s films are “Nebraska,” “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
The 75-year-old movie house will also host a “sneak peek” fundraiser for ticket holders Friday night.
