As of this writing, we're about $2,400 short of our Projection Fund goal. We have around 48 hours (until 11:45 p.m. on Wednesday, November 11) to make up this difference. While it's true that we have been showing excellent (though lesser-known) movies with the equipment we currently have, ticket sales over the past couple of years show that most of you want the more mainstream films. To show those, we need the more expensive gear. As Greater Downtown's only first-run, 7-day-a-week theater, Cinema Detroit is here for you, we've worked hard to stay here, and we want to continue. 

We love truly independent films, and we've invested quite a bit of our own resources to bring them to you. And that won't change as long as we're open. But the vast majority of you have indicated through your purchases that Cinema Detroit can't continue if we can't get the more mainstream movies you want to see. We can't survive with our current technology alone. It's that simple. If you give to our Projection Fund, you'll be ensuring that Cinema Detroit, Greater Downtown's ONLY first-run 7-day-a-week movie theater, can upgrade, survive and thrive, well into the future.

Time is getting short...can you help?
If you have already given, THANK YOU. We very much appreciate your demonstrating your support for us. You're helping us to bring you the movies you want to see. Please share the link,, and encourage your family and friends to help out as well. 
Much gratitude. 

Last Chances
In the 1950s, Tab Hunter was number one at the box office and on the music charts, a sought-after star who was romantically linked to Natalie Wood (above) and Debbie Reynolds, among others. Nothing could damage his skyrocketing career...except for the fact that he was secretly gay. Now, though, the secret is out, in Tab Hunter Confidential, as we meet, for the first time, the real Tab Hunter. This documentary from I Am Divine director Jeffrey Schwarz features rare film clips and provocative interviews with Tab's friends and co-stars.Tab Hunter Confidential is an important piece of Hollywood's hidden history that, in today's obsessive, star-driven media culture, is more relevant than ever. See below for showtimes.
The Keeping Room is a drama about three Southern women - two sisters and their former slave - who must fight to defend their home and themselves from attacks by rogue Union Army soldiers. As the film opens, the women have acknowledged their defeated situation and are essentially a family. The story, as it progresses, is at once universal and very specific to its time and place. It combines elements of Westerns, horror movies and thrillers to make something new. This is a unique film I hope you will take a chance and see. Check out the showtimes below.
STARTING Friday, November 13
Truth details the 2004 CBS 60 Minutes report investigating then-President George W. Bush's military service and the subsequent firestorm of criticism that cost anchor Dan Rather (Robert Redford) and producer Mary Mapes (Cate Blanchett) their careers. It's a suspenseful behind-the-scenes procedural, a multi-character study - and also something more: In the words of Rather himself, "This film is about what has happened to the reporting of news, how and why it's happened, and why you should care." The directorial debut ofZodiac screenwriter James Vanderbilt, Truth also stars Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss, Topher Grace, Dennis Quaid, and Bruce Greenwood.

Coming soon
