Big Sean To Open Movie Theater In Detroit

Big Sean is apparently fed up with lack of theaters in Detroit, so he is teaming up with Emagine to open a movie theater.

He turned to Instagram on Thursday, March 1 to explain how important his latest business venture is for Detroit.

Big Sean said he was inspired to open his own theater after taking a group of kids to see Black Panther.

“There Literally is NOT ONE MOVIE THEATRE IN THE CITY OF DETROIT THAT PLAYS NEW MOVIES, ONLY IN THE SUBURBS!!!” he said. “Yesterday we took 1,000 kids from a Detroit Public Schools and took them to see Black Panther as a field trip. I think it’s important they see super heroes of all shades and that look like most of them, and support it.”

“I also took that time yesterday to announce I will be opening my own Movie Theatre in the City of Detroit (The Sean Anderson theatre by Emagine @emaginetheatres) because I wanted to show the city and Detroit Public Schools that a kid from DPS that’s the same color as most of them can be a owner and a CEO too and open big business in uncharted territory!”

There Literally is NOT ONE MOVIE THEATRE IN THE CITY OF DETROIT THAT PLAYS NEW MOVIES, ONLY IN THE SUBURBS!!! Yesterday we took 1,000 kids from a Detroit Public Schools and took them to see Black Panther as a field trip. I think it’s important they see super heroes of all shades and that look like most of them, and support it. I also took that time yesterday to announce I will be opening my own Movie Theatre in the City of Detroit (The Sean Anderson theatre by Emagine @emaginetheatres) because I wanted to show the city and Detroit Public Schools that a kid from DPS that’s the same color as most of them can be a owner and a CEO too and open big business in uncharted territory! This is huge for my city! I wanted to show them face to face that I am opening a theatre just like the one they are sitting in, so they can see Black people being strong and independent and powerful, on and off the screen. I wanted to truly explain how important this is, because the Press releases n sites weren’t understanding the importance of this theatre! THERE CURRENTLY IS NO MOVIE THEATRE IN THE DETROIT THAT PLAYS CURRENT MOVIES. Its overdue for change! MAJOR BOSS UP!
