Year after year, the Main Art Theatre is picked by our readers in this category. There aren’t many frills here other than your usual popcorn and Jujubes. What the art house theater has, though, is stellar programming. In fact, Main Art has remained so committed to bringing the very best in foreign and independent film to metro Detroit, it’s a first stop for anybody serious about the genres. And it also hosts local film events, such as the Mitten Movie Fest. And for the cultists, there’s the appealing Midnight Madness film series that runs all summer long.
