Big Sean love for Detroit has been well documented. Now, he wants to do something big for Detroit that will have him remembered for years to come.
Big Sean has teamed up with Emagine to open a new high-end movie theater in his hometown, Detroit Free Press revealed. The new theater is set to open up in 2020 and serve as much more than a movie theater but a multiplex with 1300 seats with a 300 seat auditorium which will serve as a multi-function venue. In addition, it’ll also feature 10 to 12 screens.
“There is no major movie theater in the city of Detroit — this makes no sense to me,” Sean said in a statement, “I feel that it is necessary to build a theater in the city, not only because of the joy and inspiration movies will bring to people’s lives, but I hope this theater will become a hub of creativity — a place for intimate concerts, lectures, meetings, and other events.”
Co-founder of Emagine, Paul Glantz, said that the site hasn’t locked down but they’ll solidify the location at the end of the year. He said the area they plan on building the complex is “undeserved” and his joint venture with the “I Decided” rapper will address this issue.
