Detroit Film Theater celebrates 40th anniversary

The Detroit Film Theatre is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

The movie house within the Detroit Institute of Arts is screening films this weekend that have been featured throughout its four-decade history.

And the DTF is doing so at a 1974 price - $2 per movie

Four films are to be shown on Sunday, including Luis Bunuel's "Tristana" and the Australia-set "Wake in Fright."

Officials say the Detroit Film Theatre has shown 3,000 films over 2,000 weekends to more than 2 million viewers.

Among those who have appeared in person as part of a DFT program include Angela Bassett, Robert Duvall, James Earl Jones and Spike Lee.
