Russ Collins has headed the Michigan Theater Foundation since 1982. At the League of Historic American Theatres annual conference in Philadelphia in July, his work was recognized with the League's 2019 Award for Outstanding Individual Contribution. "Russ's unparalleled commitment to protecting Ann Arbors historic theatres, building them into iconic cultural centers in the heart of one of Americas most vibrant college communities, and using those lessons learned to help strengthen a whole field of art houses makes him one of the best and most valuable theatre operators working today," LHAT chair Stephanie Silverman said in a press release.
