Burton Theatre

I'm super excited about this new theater in the neighborhood! Housed in the old Burton International Elementary school (which I attended from about '81-'85!) the Burton Theatre has a blockbuster Fall line-up. Kicking the season off in two weeks with the beautiful 1973 The Spirit of the Beehive, which has haunted me ever since I saw it at the DFT a couple years ago, the inaugural season is also featuring classics (Scarface) and new releases (Dead Snow - a Nazi Zombie thriller). The theater will also house the Cass Avenue Film Syndicate which the theater's website says "exists as a resource for independent filmmakers in Detroit with public outdoor displays of art, lectures from professionals and by providing a space and encouragement to inspire local filmmakers to experiment and create." Awesome.

Read about the theater in the Metro Times and support the theater by attending the benefit tomorrow night at the Magic Stick (8pm, $5) - read more about the event in the Detroiter.
