Fall Film Series: Detroit Remember When: Made in the Motor City

November 12 2016 | 12:00pm to 4:30pm

Better Made Potato Chips, Sanders Fudge, Velvet Peanut Butter and Gratiot Auto Supply are among the brands, landmarks and people that played a major role in defining Detroit and Detroiters’ identity to the rest of the country. Narrated by broadcast legend Erik Smith, this documentary takes viewers cruising through the Woodward-Gratiot automotive corridor, dining at American Coney Island and Buddy’s Pizza, while listening to the voices of famous Detroit personalities such as Jo-Jo Shutty McGregor and Ken Calvert. The film also includes interviews with the likes of Brian Jefferson, the CEO of Sanders Fudge and Keith Wunderlich, the author of Vernor’s Ginger Ale. Filmmaker Bill Kubota will lead a Q&A session after the screening.
