I love movie theaters.  I've been going to movie theaters ever since I was eight years old.  My mom took me to the Michigan theater in downtown Lansing to watch a Christmas movie and ever since, I've been hooked!

Some of us remember the Michigan theater, Spartan triple theaters, and even the Lansing Drive-in.  All of these theaters are long gone.  But there are many theaters up and running right here in Michigan.
