SEE INSIDE THE DETROIT INSTITUTE OF ARTS FILM THEATRE - August 2, 2019
Some people may not even be aware there is an active film theatre inside the Detroit Institute of Arts. But there is! It's called the DIA Film Theatre (go see a film here if you haven't!). And it is beautiful. I cannot believe I have never photographed this space before. I love I still have new things to photograph in Detroit! A new 12mm Voigtlander prime lens was in my bag for my Sony A7III camera, and I was ready to try it out. Most of these images were captured with it.
But there is not only the film theatre, but a cafe named the Crystal Gallery where you can purchase refreshments on the second floor. The space is spacious and the details are astounding.
Even the hallway is a joy to walk through (that water fountain!!).
The film theatre may not be as grand as the Fox Theatre or the Detroit Opera House, but it definitely should be considered one of Detroit's theatres to visit. This was taken from the balcony looking over the main floor.
I enjoyed capturing architectural details, such as the exit sign.
View from one corner of the theatre on the main floor.
Lastly, we visited the stage looking out into the theatre seating.
If you have never been to the theatre, check out their schedule to see what films are showing. They are also one of the locations that hosts the Detroit Film Festival. If you are interested in purchasing any of the images here, you can do so in the DIA gallery.
