Detroit, MI for the Detroit Film Theatre

United States

Last year, I lived in Detroit for awhile and one of my favourite things to do was to visit the Detroit Film Theatre at the Institute of Arts. It’s a fairly large theatre – 1200 seats. It was a relatively warm October day, and I went to see Francoise Truffaut’s Day for Night. Really great French film.

The theatre plays all manner of movies – from present-day documentaries with themes of social relevance to a 1990s multi-part Polish tv series. Tickets are $9.50 for patrons who are not members and not students. Showings are usually in the latter part of the week – Friday, Saturday, Sunday – but sometimes they sneak a Wednesday or Thursday show in. And while you’re there – take a look around. The architecture inside the Institute is completely breathtaking.

Insider Tip

If you’re feeling peckish before the movie, the Crystal Gallery Cafe opens up an hour before showtime. They have great salads, baked goods, and even wine!
