Fostering a Film Culture in Detroit: A Q&A with Cinema Detroit's Paula Guthat

According to Paula Guthat, the film theater she co-founded in Detroit in 2013 with partner Tim Guthat came "from a place of deep love for film and the theatrical movie experience."

Five years later, Cinema Detroit is still spreading that love. With a new membership program and regular social justice-focused "talkback" events that fuse film screenings with community dialog, Guthat is intent on using Cinema Detroit to build a media-literate community in the city.
