So far, Friends of the Main Art are working on building a relationship with Main Art's property owners, A.F. Jonna company. Kryzsiak says they've been "courteous" but have ultimately said there are no plans for the Main Art property as of yet. A.F. Jonna has reached out to other potential operators, like Emagine, which shares a parking lot with the Main Art, but the theatre chain has shown little interest in partnering up.
Royal Oak's deputy city manager, Todd Fenton, has said the group would have to make some progress with A.F. Jonna company in order to proceed with any sort of reopening or restructuring plan.
The Friends of the Main Art fundraiser will take place at Bowlero Lanes & Lounge on Sunday, Nov. 14 from 6-9 p.m. and will include a cash bar, raffle, a DJ, prizes, food, and bowling. Tickets are $15-$150 and can be purchased via friendsofmainartbowling.eventbrite.com.
