Join us on Thursday, November 19 to celebrate two big Detroit occasions: the 40th anniversary of Preservation Detroit and the 90th anniversary of the Fillmore Theatre, one of Detroit’s classic movie houses.
We will also celebrate Chuck Forbes, whose dedication to historic preservation for over 30 years — and especially his commitment to saving Detroit’s historic theatres, including the Fillmore — has laid the groundwork for the renaissance of our vibrant and historic downtown.
Enjoy food, drink, a silent auction, and a tour of the Fillmore, designed by C. Howard Crane. Tell your story about why Detroit’s historic places matter at our story booth. And hear from Preservation Detroit’s board of directors about some of our recent advocacy efforts and our plans for the coming year.
Our largest benefit and membership meeting supports our mission to promote and preserve Detroit’s outstanding cultural and architectural heritage, of which The Fillmore is a remarkable part. We look forward to seeing you there!
Discounted self parking will be available across the street from the Fillmore in Lots 1 and 2 and will be $6.00. Guests will pay when they exit.
