Cinema Detroit, a non-profit community-based cinema arts organization, exists to provide access to a wide variety of films, including commercial/first-run films, independent films, and those for and by underserved communities. Cinema Detroit presents creative cinematic events where members of the Detroit and Metro area populace feel comfortable and engage with a broad range of worthwhile filmed art experiences.
For those who don’t know, Cinema Detroit is no longer screening films at the Third Street location, thus we no longer have space to rent for private shows. We have moved to a pop-up model while seeking another permanent space. We remain dedicated to providing access to a wide variety of quality films from commercial to indie to local interest and everything in between, with emphasis on films by those who have been historically excluded from the film industry. Our final screening on Third was Savanah Leaf’s Earth Mama. We have also done screenings of Guatemalan crime drama Cadejo Blanco, gay coming-of-age comedy Big Boys, documentary Max Roach: The Drum Also Waltzes, and classic film noir Hollow Triumph at U of M-Dearborn; 10 Things I Hate About You, Moonstruck, Moonrise Kingdom, and PeeWee’s Big Adventure at New Center Park; documentary Make Me Famous plus Q & A with producer Heather Spore at the Scarab Club, and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Nosferatu with live music by Invincible Czars at Senate Theater.
