Not the same theater. Note the address.
While the office building with the lobby is being renovated, the theater itself is being demolished.
Renovations are finally underway. The cinema is now called Sanctuary Cinema. Read articles at https://www.thealpenanews.com/news/local-news/2022/07/alpena-welcomes-the-sanctuary-cinema-to-town/ and http://www.wbkb11.com/alpena-breaks-ground-on-new-movie-theater-coming-downtown
Please rename this theater entry to Maltz Opera House, the name it is going by today.
The theater is not only being renovated, it will be getting a new name, the Fremont Theatre. A web page in its early stages as I type this is at https://alpenamarc.com/fremont/
The old Maltz Opera House which became the State Theatre is being restored to its original glory. Demolition is underway of the three smaller auditorium which hid the beauty of the 1925 vintage theater. Details at https://alpenamarc.com/
Please change the name of this theater to the AMC Portage Street 10.
The restored Capitol Theatre is now open. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZJEmyDI8jU
The Lebowsky Center’s marquee has been restored with new LED lighting and electronic attraction boards which mean no more using a ladder to change the program.
At the request of the producers of Destination Michigan, the video has been deleted.
The late owner’s sister has put the closed theater up for sale. The asking price is $179,000. http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/18855564/140-E-Huron-Vassar-MI/#

Reading the linked article, it became clear he could not afford a digital projector.
The cinema has been renovated and the roadside sign now says Rave Cinemas as well as Cinemark.
Another story from the Lansing State Journal. http://www.lansingstatejournal.com/article/20140504/THINGSTODO/305040069/Owosso-Community-Players-reopen-historic-Lebowsky-Center-theater-after-2007-fire
Please change the seating capacity of the Lebowsky Center to 550. The reason for the reduced capacity is an enlarged lobby and more leg room with the new stadium seating.
The reconstruction is finally completed. http://www.abc12.com/story/25432667/renovations-now-complete-at-lebowsky-center-after-2007-fire

Here’s a story from the Lansing State Journal about the show. http://www.lansingstatejournal.com/article/20140504/THINGSTODO/305040067/-Shrek-Musical-aims-lure-kids-Owosso-theater
National Amusements took over management of this cinema in 1983 operating it for a decade before it closed permanently.
Later called the Summit Place Cinema after the Pontiac Mall changed its name, it was torn down in 2014 after being abandoned for several years. http://www.theoaklandpress.com/general-news/20140204/crews-begin-demolishing-old-waterford-movie-theater-could-summit-place-mall-be-next
How about bringing back the Beltline Drive-in Theatre?
That should be the Quality 10 GDX.
The benefit opening night at the new cinema was a rousing success with all shows sold out. Details from the Saginaw News at http://www.mlive.com/entertainment/saginaw/index.ssf/2014/01/saginaw_countys_newest_movie_t.html#incart_river
