For my final photo story, I decided to photograph one of my favorite places in Detroit, Cinema Detroit. Founded by Detroiters Paula and Tim Guthat, Cinema Detroit is one of metro-Detroit’s only independent movie theater. It is also one of the only theaters in the Greater Downtown area that is open 7 days a week. The theater plays many different films ranging from John Waters’ Multiple Maniacs to F. Gary Gray’s The Fate and the Furious, movie fanatics from different ages will always find something good to watch at Cinema Detroit.
Cinema Detroit was my very first choice for my final photo story. I didn’t even get the approval from the theater yet because I was that confident that they would approve of it. I chose Cinema Detroit primarily because I admire how it is one of the only independent movie theater in Detroit. I’m always looking forward to seeing different movies that aired at festivals such as Festival de Cannes and Sundance Film Fest, that wouldn’t normally air at more mainstream theaters. What I truly hope to get out of this project is for more people to visit and experience seeing movies at Cinema Detroit. It is truly different and interesting, and for that reason is why it is one of my favorite places to go in the metro-Detroit area.
