What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Pop-up film and film-related programming

As a pop-up cinema operating in arts and culture venues throughout the Metro area, Cinema Detroit remains dedicated to offering access to a wide variety of quality films and film-related events from commercial to indie to local interest and everything in between. Our programming emphasizes even more films by those who have been historically excluded from the film industry, including but not limited to women, people of color, and LGBTQIA individuals. We continue to bring films that would never have screened in the area otherwise to audiences in Detroit, Hamtramck, and beyond, and to foster engaging events that are welcoming to all, regardless of ethnicity, gender, orientation, economic status, or film knowledge.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
