At a fading vacation resort, 11-year-old Sophie treasures rare time with her loving and idealistic father, Calum (Paul Mescal). Twenty years later, Sophie's tender recollections of their last holiday become a powerful and heartrending portrait of their relationship, as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn't, in Charlotte Wells’ superb and searingly emotional debut film.

"Charlotte Wells' promising debut feature plays with memory as a tool and lets its story unfold in dream-like waves." — Detroit News

"This mesmeric debut will make you want to stay suspended in its sun-baked setting with its two captivating lead characters for far longer than the runtime. A triumph of new British filmmaking." — Empire

In Ruben Östlund’s wickedly funny TRIANGLE OF SADNESS, social hierarchy is turned upside down, revealing the tawdry relationship between power and beauty. Celebrity model couple Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (Charlbi Dean) are invited on a luxury cruise for the uber-rich, helmed by an unhinged boat captain (Woody Harrelson). What first seemed instagrammable ends catastrophically, leaving the survivors stranded on a desert island and fighting for survival.

"An absurd, iconoclastic riot. Ruben Östlund’s point may be blunt — yep, rich people are bad — but his telling of it is hilariously, breathlessly entertaining." — Empire

Cinema Detroit needs YOUR help
Cinema Detroit has never had the grant support that other cultural institutions enjoy (not for lack of trying). Tickets and concessions are our main sources of revenue. It's no secret that movie audiences haven't rebounded to pre-pandemic levels. Folks just aren't buying as many tickets, and if they don't come into the theater, they aren't buying concessions.

We want to stay accessible to all in the community, so we keep the cost of the moviegoing experience as low as we can, and we don't want to change that.

That's where you come in.

Financial support is the most effective way to help Cinema Detroit survive and thrive into the future. Donations to Cinema Detroit are tax-deductible through our fiscal sponsor Allied Media Projects and help us to cover expenses like rent, maintenance, insurance, and so much more. Thank you for your support!

Cinema Detroit is....
...Metro Detroit’s only truly independent cinema, delivering an eclectic, quirky and quality mix of contemporary, indie, cult, genre, and classic movies in the heart of the city.

Established in 2013, it is also still the only movie theater in Greater Downtown. Located at 4126 Third Street, 48201, we feature a wide variety of movies in a unique setting – the former Weber Furniture Store – and freshly made popcorn, Faygo pop, and occasionally other locally-made treats.

...a community-based, mission-driven non-profit cinema that exists to benefit the community and the arts. Specifically, Cinema Detroit:
  • promotes media literacy and arts education.
  • provides a community gathering place for watching films and for the dialogue that they spark.
  • provides the city of Detroit and the metro Detroit region with access to a breadth of film options, from mainstream to local, especially the best independent film.
