As we build momentum, we will launch a capital campaign for full renovation of the theater building and its four adjoining storefronts. Our goal is to transform the Alger into a regional destination for arts and culture. Through these efforts we will serve as an anchor for stabilization of the surrounding neighborhoods & commercial corridor to create a dense, walkable and self-sustaining neighborhood.


Halloween 2014

Thanks to all our Friends for sharing your Halloween evening with us! Big thanks to Nate Bonkowski and Cook’s Crossing for super food. Gallons of love to Dan Scarsella and Motor City Brewing Works for tasty Oktoberfest brew and Pumpkin Ale. It was great to see some new faces at the theater and raise more $$ to get the theater opened.
