Movie lovers will be delighted by a trip to Northern Michigan: AMC Cinemas offers two locations in Traverse City (about a 40 minute drive from the resort), and brings most of the popular recent releases to the region. Fans of foreign and independent cinema must make time to stop at The State Theater and Bijou by the Bay, two independent theaters that were recently renovated with the support of the Traverse City Film Festival. If your thirst for movies still isn’t quenched, try the Bay Theater in Downtown Suttons Bay, which features a selection of mostly independent films.
