While the pandemic has put some of our favorite seasonal activities on hold, summer in Detroit isn’t canceled — we rounded up some of the best virtual and in-person events (with proper physical distancing of course) to add to your bucket list.
Detroit Cultural Center to reopen
The Detroit Cultural Center and the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) is reopening to the public on Friday, July 10, with new safety precautions, including hand-sanitation dispensers throughout the institutions, mask requirements, limited hours and reduced occupancy, and other safety measures in line with CDC guidelines. This includes all of the Detroit museums, like The Carr Center, Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, Detroit Historical Museum, Hellenic Museum of Michigan, Michigan Science Center, and The Scarab Club.
Movies under the stars
Watching the latest blockbuster in an air-conditioned theater is one of the quintessential summer things to do, but you can still watch your movie and eat your popcorn too thanks to local independent theaters. Cinema Detroit will have a drive-in showing of “Purple Rain” at 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 11 at the Herman Kiefer Complex, 1151 Taylor St. Tickets cost $12. For those who want the theater experience at home, Cinema Detroit is offering streaming options for stay-in movie nights. Film Lab Detroit is also offering films virtually as well as screening popular summer flicks such as “Jaws” and “Lost Boys” on its new Outdoor Patio Cinema.
