DETROIT, MI - Cinema Detroit, an independent movie theatre, is struggling to sustain its operations. Donations are needed for the theater’s equipment upgrades, talkback screening, and hiring help.

Cinema Detroit is known as a one-of-a-kind movie theatre and is also the only one operating for 7-day-a-week in Downtown Detroit. Situated in a former furniture factory, they offer a different kind of atmosphere when watching films.

As a non-profit organization, Cinema Detroit seeks to only benefit the community. This can be a challenge as they operate in a profit-oriented business. Therefore, they require additional help in order to stay afloat and serve the community with a great selection of movies of all kinds and create a space where everyone can share their mutual love for films.

Donations received will be used for various improvements. To organize affordable talkback screenings, they need to cover a proper film rental. They are committed to showing films legally and therefore aren't free as they have to pay the distributor. There’s also a set of outreach, planning, and event management process to go through.

In addition to that, they need to upgrade their equipment and furnishing, and hire staff for maintenance. All of this is meant to refine the screening experience for visitors.

There are several ways to support Cinema Detroit. Memberships cost from $35 for Production Assistant, $60 for Editor, and $105 for Assistant Director. All membership types are one year long and come with various perks which include a free movie on your birthday, a certain percent off concessions and tickets for sponsored screening or events, and many more.

Aside from memberships, you can make your donations through Allied Media Projects by sending a check and mail to Allied Media Projects 4126 Third St., Detroit, MI 48201. For tax-deductible donations, visit this link.
