Detroit Film Theatre
at the DIA
During the late 1960s the Grande Ballroom stood at the epicenter of the Detroit rock scene that spawned bands such as Iggy & The Stooges, Alice Cooper, The Frost, SRC and more. The Grande also inspired British acts such as Led Zeppelin, Cream and Pink Floyd, many of whom dreaded having to follow a blistering opening set by the MC5. Louder Than Love documents the creative and revolutionary frenzy of Detroit in the 1960s with rare archival footage and interviews by surviving musicians, and explores the now abandoned theater haunted by this legacy. (75 min.)
Special guests Wayne Kramer of the MC5, Curatorial Director Howard Kramer from the Roll and Roll Hall of Fame, and Louder Than Love director Tony D’Annunzio will all be present to discuss the film with the audience after the screening. This special encore showing of Louder Than Love is part of the Concert of Colors and is free to the public.
