Saline Celebrates The Opening of Emagine Theatre, Raises $36,000 For Charity

 The grand opening of Saline’s Emagine Theatre, the town’s first movie theater since the mid-20th Century, was a swanky affair that raised around $36,000 for Saline Area Social Service and the Foundation for Saline Area Schools.All 500 tickets were sold for the event ($100 a ticket for adults and $50 for children), which gave the dapper and elegantly-dressed crowd a sneak preview of the luxury theater before it opens to the public Saturday. Friday’s grand opening was jubilant celebration of many things. Great community charities. Progress in a long-neglected shopping plaza that is a gateway to the community. The optimism that’s arm-in-arm with Saline’s economic rebound. And the return of the Hollywood big screen to the City of Saline.
