Dear Friends of the Redford Theatre:

In 1928, a new neighborhood movie house opened in Detroit called the Redford Theatre and it quickly became a neighborhood institution. Decades later hundreds of movie palaces fell into disrepair but the Redford Theatre and its theatre organ, with support from the Motor City Theatre Organ Society, a team of dedicated volunteers, and devoted attendees, managed to escape the ravages of neglect that befell so many others.

Unfortunately, this unique, historic theatre requires constant upkeep and attention. We also need to keep up with changes in technology, so that you may enjoy the best possible experience. It is our hope that through this fundraising effort we can bring you clearer sound, the completion of the Ladies Lounge, a needed handicap accessible restroom, expanded parking, and more.

We invite you to play a vital role in the continued operations and improvements to this beautiful, one of a kind movie palace. The Redford is a special theatre, one that continues to bring history to life, entertaining and educating audiences from all over metro Detroit. Won’t you please consider making a donation and play an active role in continuing the Redford Theatre traditions?

Warmest Regards,
Liam Neary
