Emagine Entertainment’s Royal Oak location is branching out into the live performance business.
Starting April 9 with a concert by Ann Arbor-based “The Voice” finalist Laith Al-Saadi, the company will partner with Detroit’s Litchfield Productions to present a LIVE @ Emagine weekend series in the multiplex on the northeast corner of Main Street and Eleven Mile Roads. Comedian Spencer James will follow on April 10, while subsequent dates include: Nashville singer-songwriters Kari Holmes and Lisa Mary, April 16; Detroit singers Nicole New and Ben Sharkey, April 17; and The Three Men and A Tenor” on April 18.
In addition to stepping into a niche created by the continuing shut-down of clubs, theaters and other regular performance venues, the move also allows Emagine to mitigate the declining number of theatrical film releases to fill its facilities.
Tickets for the shows run $15-$70. A variety of seating options include individual seats, luxury recliners, high-top tables and private boxes for up to 15 people. Emagine will enforce social distancing, mask wearing and other safety guidelines.
Emagine is considering live performances for some of its other locations, “depending on demand and arrangements.”
