The Garden Theater receives generous donation
“It was an honor for The Garden Theater to be part of the 2014 Traverse City Film Festival in downtown Frankfort,” says Rick Schmitt, co-owner of the theater, pictured second from left. “Equally exciting was to have Michael Moore here to introduce the film and make a personal donation to the ongoing renovation of the theater.”
While introducing The German Doctor on July 23, Moore (center) donated $5,000 of his own money to the theater, fulfilling a promise of returning tax credits for making films in Michigan.
