Cinema Detroit

Cinema Detroit has:

  • Survived 4 years and counting as an independent in an extremely difficult corporate-dominated business while keeping prices as affordable as possible
  • Continued to offer the City proper access a wide variety of mainstream, specialty, indie, cult and classic movies
  • Shown many films that would not otherwise be seen in the metro area, the state or the Midwest;
  • Won the title of Best Indie Cinema in the WDIV Vote for the Best poll in 2015, 2016, and 2017;
  • Committed to maintaining at least 40% of programming that is directed by women, people of color, LGBTQ or other underrepresented voices - compared to 4% or less in a multiplex or other chain venue
  • Regularly programmed films that should be seen, rather than just make money
  • Continues to offer monthly series of socially-relevant talkback screenings
  • Discounted screenings to schools so their students can see and discuss important films like Hidden Figures, I Am Not Your Negro, and more.
