Lease Space

Commercial Kitchen


Whether you are an actor, artist, baker, chef, coder, dancer, graphic designer, maker, musician, videographer, problem solver, change-maker, or anyone else who defines themselves by their desire to create, you are welcome here.  We are excited to provide you with a home to hone your craft, practice your trade, perform for audiences large & small, teach others, and sell your wares locally and beyond.

If you need a 250+ seat theatre & performance venue with recording/live stream capabilities to share your dance studio’s latest performance, a commercial kitchen to launch your cottage food based business or food truck, a retail/office space with direct access to Washington Street, a place to teach a class to the community or meet-up with your quilting club, a sound booth to launch a podcast, or a connection to another local group or individual who can help you in your creative endeavor, we’re here to set the stage for your success.

We are the Masonic Arts, Theatre & Innovation Company, better known as MÄTI (Mah*tee).  Based in the historic Masonic Square Mall in downtown Marquette, our goal is to acquire the building and turn it into a regional creative, collaborative hub that provides the creative community with a place to share their vision with the public and promote innovation through all art mediums.

The $17,500 Vision: Imagine a mobile screen and projector that can be installed anywhere within an hour of Marquette for community gatherings, nonprofits and civic organization events. DONATE TODAY!"

MÄTI Patronicity Campaign!

MÄTI  is eligible for a matching grant from the Public Spaces Community Places, a program of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation.

Our Goal: To bring drive-in movies to areas around the Central Upper Penninsula by upgrading our drive-in movie equipment to be weather-proof and mobile. We’ll be able to create movie screenings or art installations anywhere with only a few hours of installation. But only if we hit our $17,500 goal by August 9th!
