The Friends of the Alger Theater are cooking up
a great summer season.
We were delighted to be involved in the East English Village/CEM Business Association’s Winter Warren Pub Crawl in March. Great to see neighbors and friends discovering good places to eat and drink in their own neighborhood area.
Currently, the Friends are investigating all of the repairs required to achieve a certificate of occupancy for the theater. The goal would be to open for public Alger fundraising events, showing off a safe albeit rough interior and the possibilities of this historic space. Please contact Marc Tirkian at 313-460-1975 if you have architectural, engineering or building experience that would be valuable to our facilities committee.
For upcoming events, see the link to the left for more information about this season’s Film on the Hill. We are also planning a membership appreciation event that will coincide with the East English Village anniversary activities at the end of June. Check our membership page to become a member or renew your membership. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer to help make our events successful.
Please remember that our primary source of income is the Alger theater marquee. The marquee is rented on a weekly basis and can be used for business announcements, personal messages, congratulations and anniversaries. We estimate that over 3,600 vehicles pass the corner every day to deliver over 25,200 impressions for your marketing message per week. Information on marquee rental can be found on this site.
