What I would like to do eventually is to start a non-profit organization to purchase the Martha Washington building, reconvert it back into a movie theater, and operate the theater for arts/limited release films
I think having EMU support would be a big help. I'm sure local churches would chip in as well. Another big contributor to this campaign may be the Historical Society off Ypsilanti as well as the city DDA. After all the building was once called the Martha Washington, and was an important building within the city of Ypsilanti, and could become a new bellwether for cultural renewal within Ypsilanti.
