Detroit: Ruin of a City: If you missed the screenings in Ann Arbor, there will be a showing this evening in Detroit.

Professor Michael Chanan (University of the West of England) and George Steinmetz (University of Michigan) have produced a unique documentary about Detroit and its ruination.

The film is a collaboration between Professor Chanan, who is a seasoned film-maker, and sociologist George Steinmetz, with music by the composer Michael Nyman, who is well known for his many film scores.

A special screening of “Detroit: Ruin of a City” will take place at the Redford Theatre on Tuesday, April 5 at 8:00 p.m. (doors open at 7:00). Tickets are $3.00 at the door and proceeds will benefit the non-profit MCTOS/Redford Theatre and Motor City Blight Busters. 

This will be the first presentation of this story within the city of Detroit and, appropriately, it will be held in the beautifully restored auditorium of the last operating neighborhood movie palace in Detroit.
