Marquette, Michigan – May 14, 2014 – Thomas Theatre Marquette is set to open their doors at 1525 Commerce Drive in Marquette this Friday, May 16.
The newest theater in Marquette boasts 10 screens with leather high-back chairs and stadium style seating, state-of-the-art digital projection and sound systems, and will seat approximately 1,200 people. Thomas Theatre Marquette also has the only Large Format Screen (35′ tall by 60′ wide) in the Upper Peninsula.
Thomas Theatre Marquette also has a party room for birthdays, corporate events, meetings or celebrations of any kind and an intimate VIP theater with all VIP seating available for rent.
The design and architecture of the building was inspired by the history and traditions of the U.P. and the Marquette area. Tom Andes, president of the Thomas Theatre Group, is no stranger to the Marquette area; his great grandfather built the Delft Theater. Andes has been heading up his 90-year-old family business since 2010 and has three theaters in the Upper Peninsula.
Thomas Theatre Group is involved in the communities in which they operate and support many organizations nationally and locally. For more information about the organizations they support, visit the TTG Corporate site.

A member of the Great Lakes Radio family since 2013, Nancy spends most days typing furiously in her office. When not hard at work writing and editing, if this Sriracha enthusiast isn't experimenting in her kitchen, she can usually be found with her nose in a book or in front of a computer keeping up with her favorite blogs, researching topics for future articles, and playing World of Warcraft... FOR THE HORDE! (BattleTag: GingrMadness#1559)
Nancy's days of chasing little ones around are over for now, but she looks forward to chasing grandkids around in the future (the DISTANT future). Until then, she's adjusting well to the quiet and spending as much time with her daughters as they can stand.
Always in search of a good red and a great read (or a great red and a mediocre read), Nancy welcomes your suggestions on either.
