Detroit Film Theatre

The gorgeously restored Detroit Film Theatre is attached to and part of the Detroit Institute of Arts on Woodward. The 1200 seat venue was built in 1927, designed by Paul Philippe Cret with C Howard Crane.  The result is total elegance. This weekend we were able to see The Mill and the Cross which is quite a fascinating movie within a painting by Pieter Bruegel.  One of the DIA's most magnificent works is the Wedding Dance by this Dutch artist. The painting of the movie is Bruegel's The Way to Calvary and blends the crucifixion of Christ with the Spanish inquisition and life in the 16th century. The DFT offers an awesome line-up of foreign and unusual little seen movies. Seriously....we've been coming here forever!
