Metro Times Best of Detroit
🎬 Masks are strongly encouraged for everyone.
🎬 TICKETS are available online OR at the box office on show days beginning one half-hour (30 minutes) before the first showtime of the day. Please be aware that third-party ticketing sites are often inaccurate.

We are still the only first-run movie theater in Greater Downtown and we are still committed to making the moviegoing experience as accessible to as many people in the City and the Metro Detroit area as we can, while presenting as many films and film-related events as possible.

Cinema Detroit has never had the grant support that other area cultural institutions enjoy (not for lack of trying). Tickets and concessions are our main sources of revenue, and as stated above, we keep those as reasonably-priced as we can.

But It's no secret that movie audiences haven't rebounded to pre-pandemic levels. Folks just aren't buying as many tickets as they have in the past, and if they don't come into the theater, they aren't buying concessions.

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!
AFTERSUN is HELD OVER to the 8th
AFTERSUN is nominated for 5 Film Independent Spirit Awards: Best First Feature, Best Lead Performance (Paul Mescal), Best Breakthrough Performance (Frankie Corio), Best Cinematography, and Best Editing. Director Charlotte Wells won the Bingham Ray Breakthrough Director Award at the Gotham Awards.

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

A Cinema Detroit exclusive
From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Fernando Trueba (Belle Époque), MEMORIES OF MY FATHER is based on the true story of prominent doctor and human rights activist Héctor Abad Gómez (Javier Cámara). In the polarized and violent Medellín of the 1970s, Héctor is concerned about both his own children and children from less favored classes. We watch through the eyes of his only son as Héctor dedicates himself to the greater cause of public health programs for the poor, to the consternation of the city’s authorities.
MEMORIES OF MY FATHER | Official US Trailer HD | V2 | Only in Theaters November 16
"Memories Of My Father is a vivid portrait of a smart, principled, kind man...making it another topical Oscar contender” — Deadline

“An absolutely winning performance...genuinely moving.” — The Arts Desk

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.
