  2. I am planning on coming to see Born to Fly, and I want to bring a few friends, I was wondering how many people does the theater seat? and how much are tickets and also will there be a Q & A after? Is there any way you could request a few of the Streb members to come for a Q & A?


    • Hi, thanks for your interest. We have 2 theaters, one seats 125, the other seats 86. Not sure which we’ll be screening this on. Tickets will be $8. We are still working out details for a possible Q & A.


  3. Our documentary Llyn Foulkes One Man Band just qualified for an Oscar and we would love to book with Cinema Detroit for our Michigan premiere. Audiences, from students to seniors alike, are raving and the only way to see the film is through venues like yours.

    We followed American painter Llyn Foulkes for seven years until he was rediscovered by the international art world at age 77. The film illuminates the struggles and pitfalls of pursuing a passion, but it’s not just about being an artist – it’s about being a beautifully-flawed human.

    You can view the trailer at http://www.llynfoulkesfilm.com and we are happy to provide your booker with a secure online screener.


  4. Thank you so much for screening The Salvation starring Mads Mikkelsen. I’ve been searching the net for locations since it opened. So glad to have finally found your organization.


  5. If I buy my tickets online, do I need to print a confirmation to bring or will the confirmation number be enough to present at the ticket office? Thanks.


  6. I was wondering if you would possibly be playing the Hungarian film White God in your theater? Been searching venues, but no one seems to be playing it, and Cinema Detroit always seems to find those off beat gems that no one else has🙂


    • Hi Kylee,
      I’m always sorry to disappoint anyone, but we’ve found foreign films to be an extremely tough sell and so have no plans to screen White God.


  7. I’m hosting a group of students May 17-23 and would love to bring them to Cinema Detroit. Do you have anything programmed for that week?


    • Hi DJW,
      I’ve just updated the sidebar on the right with our complete May lineup and will be adding more info ASAP. We have three films starting on May 15 that will be showing during the time you mention: We Are Still Here is a horror film, Animals is a drama about a young homeless couple, and I Am Big Bird is a documentary about Carroll Spinney, who has portrayed Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street since 1969. Hope this helps.


  8. Hi Paula,

    Just wondering who one would get in touch with in regards to programming/booking at Cinema Detroit. An email address would be wonderful. Thanks so much.


  9. Hi Paula,

    Just wondering who one would get in touch with in regards to programming/booking at Cinema Detroit. Best regards!

  10. HI,

    Hope you are well. Have you ever hosted a musical performance in one of your theaters? I think it would be an incredibly unique experience.


  11. Dear Paula and Tim:


    I am a local Detroit resident requesting that the Cinema Detroit screen the documentary film, VAXXED (http://www.vaxxedthemovie.com/). While the film is highly controversial because it exposes corruption at the CDC and within the mainstream media, venues such as Cinema Detroit should provide a space for the airing of such films.

    US citizens have a right to make up their own minds about information they encounter. It is our First Amendment right to see the film, which is being banned, blocked, or otherwise discredited by many film festivals around the country, and also by the mainstream media (by so-called journalists who have not even seen the film). This is a country that was founded on free speech and such censorship should not be tolerated by ANYONE, regardless of one’s position on the film’s topic. Furthermore, citizens have a right to hear allegations made against their government and a duty to investigate them.

    Therefore, I urge Cinema Detroit to stand up and protect free speech in this country. Please get the video and show it to concerned Metro Detroiters!

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    • Hi Wendy,

      Thank you for contacting us and suggesting this movie. We are always willing to take suggestions, but we cannot book every movie that is suggested. It is very hard with only two screens. Honestly, we have to say “no” to a lot of great movies because we simply don’t have the room.

      And this is the case at the moment. Our schedule is booked solid into early June. Please contact me directly at tim@cinemadetroit.com if you have any questions or would like to discuss this in more detail.



  12. Hi!
    I’ve got some questions about costs for a week long run at Cinema Detroit and about scheduling something like that. Would love to talk with someone about it, if possible.
