A Movie Lovers Night Out in Detroit

This post is in partnership with Metro Detroit Party Bus

If there’s one thing that’s apparent to both tourists and residents of Michigan, it’s that Detroit is going through a heavy phase of redevelopment. It seems like there are constantly new entertainment venues popping up whether they are restaurants, shopping centers, or sports arenas! It’s an exciting time to visit the Motor City and experience the transformation first hand. For movie lovers, there’s no better way to enjoy a night out on the town than by checking out a film feature at one of the many theaters around town or doing a bit of exploring.


It’s actually pretty easy to plan a night out on the town itinerary around this concept! Dinner and a movie is a structure that allows you to relax and enjoy the moment, whether you’re with a group of friends or riding solo. If you happen to be with a group, it’s always a good idea to consider professional transportation for the event.

While the instinct is to pull out your cellphone and head to the Uber app, there’s a better option that can actually be a lot more frugal when a group is considered. Reserving a limousine or party bus for this type of event will turn it into an unforgettable celebration, and that’s because you’re able to visit multiple destinations in one night!


DIA Film Theatre

Heading over the Detroit Institute of Arts is always an immersive, educational experience. A lot of people aren’t aware that they also have a Film Theatre with options of both modern and classic cinema. Tickets are under ten dollars if you aren’t a member of a museum, while Saturday matinees will only run you $5. With a varied film schedule, there’s a little something for everybody.


Tour Real Life Movie Scenery

If you’re a true movie geek, you know the feeling of magic when you’re in the same spot that one of your favorite movies was filmed at. Use some of your time to tour filming locations from movies like “Batman v Superman“, “Gran Torino“, “Whip It“, and the popular “Transformers” series.


Check out Historic Cinema Venues

Found on the city’s west side, the Redford Theatre is a piece of history that should definitely be included in any movie lover’s night out on the town. It constantly hosts screenings of vintage films with cult followings, so entertainment is always on the schedule here. The ticket prices are affordable for all budget points, so is the snack bar. It is cash only though, so be sure to hit an ATM!

Using a party bus or a limousine for your night out on the town in Detroit will elevate your experience in ways you wouldn’t have thought! You don’t truly notice how many inconveniences you normally deal with until they’re being taken care of for you. Finding directions, dealing with traffic and construction, and finding a designated driver are all things you don’t have to worry about when you secure a reservation for luxury Metro Detroit Transportation. When the cost is split among a group, it’s an affordable way to stay safe and have fun.
