NEW iOS APP from the DFT at the DIA

Detroit Institute of Arts announces new Detroit Film Theatre
features schedule, ability to buy tickets

August 28, 2013 (Detroit)—The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) announced a new Detroit Film Theatre (DFT) app available for iPhones that features the DFT schedule, Crystal Gallery cafĂ© menu, and information about past DFT movies. Users can also purchase tickets and add movies to their calendars.
The app also links to the DIA’s mobile website, and has information on how to become a member of Friends of Detroit Film Theatre, an auxiliary that supports DFT initiatives.

The upcoming season focuses on animated films, many in conjunction with the exhibition Watch Me Move: The Animation Show, which opens Oct. 5. These include a series on the history of animation from the early 20th century to today’s computer-generated effects. The new season also offers a mix of new and classic films in a variety of genres. A highlight of the season is D.W. Griffith’s 1916 epic film Intolerance, which many critics consider one of the most influential movies of all time.
