Donate Every Penny Counts!

Make a General Donation
Seeing a movie at the State and Bijou is about more than affordable prices, state-of-the-art projection and sound, or even the unrivaled comfort of our Michigan-made seats. Our passionate volunteers in the theaters and on our board of directors are dedicated to bringing you unique experiences that start as you approach the glow of our beautiful marquees, and stay with you long after the credits roll. With your support, we'll keep that magical experience alive. It’s easy, it’s fast, and it’s safe to make a 100 percent tax deductible donation to your downtown movie theaters online.
