September 23 @ 11:30 am - September 29 @ 6:00 pm


Watch the award-winning Michigan film narrated by Motown Legend Martha Reeves on the big screen! “Boblo Boats: A Detroit Ferry Tale” is a feature-length magical realist documentary that follows a doctor, psychic and amusement park fanatic who fight to save America’s oldest surviving passenger steamboats from the scrapyard. For so many Michiganders, riding the legendary steamboats to Boblo Island amusement park was a rite of passage. The film captures the pride of this favorite family tradition while also peeling back the layers of nostalgia to reveal the forgotten Boblo civil rights victories that eventually paved the way for sweeping change across the U.S. Appropriate for all ages.
