The largest one, which can seat 205 people, has a starry ceiling with Northern Michigan’s August constellations.

Murals on the walls make it feel like you’re sitting in the middle of the harbor.  The second was designed to make viewers feel like they’re sitting in a railroad car, which is how many people traveled to Northern Michigan before automobiles became popular.  The third theatre’s theme has yet to be decided, though it will likely be winter-related to promoting visiting the community year-round.
