Acclaimed film director, Sidney Lumet would have celebrated his 100th birthday this June. In celebration the Senate is excited to present one of his best regarded and beloved films, Dog Day Afternoon, starring Al Pacino and John Cazale!  


Based on a real-life robbery turned hostage situation, this typically grimy piece of 70s realism was rightfully lauded by critics upon release and, today, has earned its place in the pantheon of great American films. In no small part its captivating and honest portrayal of desperate people at the edges of society solidified the legendary status of its director and star.  


Brimming with tension and pathos, it is just as potent now as it was in 1975. 


Come see it the way Mr. Lumet intended, on a big screen, in a movie theater, surrounded by fellow lovers of film! 

The Senate Theater and The Detroit Theater Organ Society is supported by The Michigan Arts and Culture Council and The National Endowment for the Arts. 

Parking is available in our gated lot, on Gilbert, and Michigan Avenue
