Opened in 1921 as a grand movie palace and vaudeville live performance venue, the theater was known as the Macomb Theatre until 1987. From 2000 to 2012, it was called the Macomb Music Theater. The Emerald Theatre was designed by noted theater architect, C. Howard Crane, who also designed Detroit’s Orchestra Hall, Fox Theatre and the former Olympia Stadium. One of the first grand movie palaces in the metropolitan Detroit area, the Emerald Theatre is the largest venue of its type in Macomb County.
On November 5, 2012, the theater was purchased and renovations began on the historic property at an anticipated cost in excess of $2 million. Under new ownership, it was renamed the Macomb Music Theatre. The newly renovated venue opened its doors on April 13, 2013 with a sold out jazz concert featuring Grammy award winners and nominees Gerald Albright, Norman Brown and Alex Bugnon, followed by the Grammy award winning comedy duo Cheech & Chong on April 21, 2013.
In addition to a magnificent venue for live concerts, orchestra performances and staged plays, it is particularly well suited for private parties, corporate events, live speaking engagements, brunch events, daytime meetings, product launches, press conferences, and wedding & rehearsal dinners.
The “personal property” (included in the purchase price) with the Macomb County Class C liquor license is estimated to be worth $590,000.00
