The Fox Theatre hosted the premiere of the new film "Detroit" on Tuesday night. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow of “The Hurt Locker” and “Zero Dark Thirty” fame, the film stars John Boyega, Will Poulter, Agee Smith, Anthony Mackie and Hannah Murray.
The invitation event included the traditional red carpet and stars, along with Bigelow and screenwriter/producer Mark Boal.
“Detroit" tells the story of the Detroit riot in 1967 and the brutality at the annex of the Algiers Motel on Woodward Avenue, where three people were murdered and several beaten by Detroit police. Three officers were charged with murder but acquitted.
